"After the summer, my future is unclear," he told The Shields Gazette.
"Basically, I'll do what I've always done. Like I've always said, I've never taken it (playing for Newcastle) for granted. Every time I step on that pitch, I relish it.
"When it does finally end, it'll be a sad moment, but at the moment my focus is trying to help this club.
"That's what I've always tried to do, and that will never change."
Ameobi was an unused substitute in Newcastle's last two games after starting the 3-0 derby defeat against Sunderland at the start of this month.
