NIGERIA insist they will report Newcastle to Fifa if they block Shola Ameobi from playing in the African Nations Cup.

Ameobi, 31, who switched his allegiance from England two years ago, has won a shock call-up by the Super Eagles for next month’s tournament.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew vowed his striker will not be heading to South Africa and is refusing to back down.

Ameobi could miss five Premier League games during a crucial part of the season.

But Nigeria Football Federation committee member Chris Green has threatened to take the Toon to task if Ameobi is a no-show.

He said: “It’s a big joke. Our position has not changed.

“We have a pre-tournament camp and everyone must turn up.

“If any clubs are bent on holding on to the players then we will have no choice but to report them to Fifa.

“Then appropriate sanctions can be taken.”
