SHOLA Ameobi's proposed move to Ipswich Town is off for the time being at least, after it was discovered he has a hamstring injury.

The Blues said his signing has now been put on hold as the injury is unlikely to clear up before the end of the month, when the transfer window closes.

Ipswich are now exploring other options in their bid to sign a forward.

Ameobi's injury became apparent during the Newcastle player's medical yesterday.
