Coach John Obuh said that the younger Ameobi teamed up with the Nigeria Under-20s early Monday and even trained with the rest of the squad later in the day.
“He will go along with us to Dubai, where we will play two friendly matches against Egypt and Saudi Arabia. We will therefore have a chance to fully assess the player there,” Obuh told MTNFootball.com.
Sam is a striker who can also play as a left-winger. He is the third Ameobi to join Newcastle United. His immediate older brother, Tomi, is now at Leeds United after passing through the Newcastle Academy just like big brother Shola.
Shola is yet to make his debut for Nigeria but is expected to do so soon.
