Toronto FC won't give up on Newcastle's Ameobi

Toronto FC boss John Carver remains keen on Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi.

The Evening Chronicle says despite the player's agent Steven Denos ruling out a move to the MLS, the word from across the Atlantic is that the Canadian club are keeping tabs on the recently-married player's situation.

And talk that Toronto couldn't afford Shola's wages has been dismissed by the club.

Mega-bucks Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment group are ready to back a move for the player.

And TFC could exercise their designated player card, which allows teams to have one player earning more than the MLS's salary cap of $400,000.
