Manager Neil Warnock said on his new signing: “As soon as I became aware Sammy was available I let him know I wanted him, and we had a few good conversations. I thought it was important he could see what he could do for us, and what I could do for him.
“I’ve always thought he’s a danger, and I’ll be looking to use that danger and have a system where I can get him in positive forward positions”.
In his first spell at Boro, Ameobi scored one goal and provided an assist in nine Championship appearances.
