Sky Sports is reporting this morning that Spanish Club Levante are keen to take Albert Luque back to the La Liga on loan for the season.
This would have been quickly picked up by Newcastle a couple of months ago, but with Luque’s improved attitude andÂ improved form in pre-season we would like to seeÂ Albert stay at Newcastle for the season.
Â He deserves anÂ opportunity to revitalize his career on Tyneside, given the disastrous time he’s experienced in his first two seasons at the club..
Albert Luque - much improved attitude and form under Sam Allardcye – keep him!
It’s true that the Spanish striker has struggled to make an impact at St James’ Park since his move from Deportivo La Coruna in 2005, but now with manager Sam Allardyce in charge, mostÂ fans and Luque himself feel he can start to produce the form we all know he possesses.
While Luque has managed only 14 starts in his first two seasons at Newcastle we would be disappointed if Allardyce let’s himÂ go now. We don’t know the financial situation at Newcastle and we know Chairman Chris Mort would like to cut theÂ Â£80M debts – but we think Luque can really help the team this season.
Levante tried to sign the player last January but failed along with a number of other clubs, but they are now reported to have renewed their interest after failing to secure a deal for Brazilian striker Baiano.
Luque has been in good form for Newcastle in this season’s warm-up games looking good and particularly sharp and confident in front of goal scoring 3 good goals.Â We think Albert should stay and try to make it at Newcastle, because we now think it is definitely possible â€“ and we hope the club let’s him have that opportunity.
In any case he’s promised to look after our new boy Jose Enrique
What do you think?Â Â Should Newcastle send Luque out on loan?
