Lovenkrands Accepts Deal Through End Of Season


Sky Sports is reporting that Newcastle will do a deal with Peter Lovenkrands only until the end of the season and then look at things again at that time.

peter-lovenkrands-234

Peter Lovenkrands – he had gray hair before joining Newcastle 😀

Newcastle manager Kinnear has already offered the Denmark international a week-long trial, but Joe seems already convinced and the manager has offered the Danish International a short term deal.

Joe said today:

“We have spoken about him staying with me until the end of the season and then looking at it at the end of the season, and that’s the position we find ourselves in at the moment,”

“He is happy to do that, so hopefully we can tie something up and make something permanent at the end of this week for the rest of the season.”

That seems a little odd to us, but it does stack all the advantages to the club, because we can see how Peter does through the end of the season, and then be better positioned to know what deal he’s worth longer term, if any.

Lovenkrands seems OK with that offer.

The main thing is to get good players in through the end of the seaosn, and then we can rebuild the squad more substantially in the summer, when a lot more of our targets should be available.

And after reports that Newcastle may make a move for West Ham midfielder Nigel Quashie, Kinnear was quick to play down newspaper reports linking us with him – so we can cross that made-up story off the list – and that’s good.

Comments welcome.

    good deal for him as well – if he plays well he’ll get offers from other clubs and can negotiate with the highest bidder

    JK said that the players coming in on loan are Italian and Argentinian. He also said that we were about to sign Appiah but then Spuds offered him a trial. But I read that Appiah’s trial has finished and SPuds didn’t offer him anything!

    I was just thinking that Stevep, hope he doesnt come in and set the prem alight then do off at the end of the season!

    JFK said the 2 loan signings were an argie and an italian, both internationals. LB – Burdisso? I’d put a few quid on that being one of them.

    Great news , if he does well we will have a chance to offer him a long term contract before other teams move in .
    If he still has his speed after the injuries he has had then we are onto a winner . The pace he and Oba have will scare most defences to death .

    Well has has to prove himself now.

    His last club let him go on a free….so i dont think we should be massively expecting much tbh.

    Clubs dont tend to let go of even averagely good players for nothing.

    If Peter does well until the end of the season, and we want to keep him I cant see him moving on unless Rangers can afford his wages!! He’s looking to settle down somewhere near Glasgow so his wife is near to family.

    Hope he does well, is he eligble for tomorrow?
    If not PLAY RANGER 🙂

    I’d read that he’d simply been frozen out in favour of younger players. He was injury-ridden last season but not this time around, he just hasn’t been used.

    If the LB is from Juve and Burdisso is the Argey Bargey then it must only be Molinaro

    I think I’m led to believe that any new players brought in between cup replays aren’t illegible to play in the replay if they hadn’t already been signed before the original tie. Could be wrong of course.

    “Does anyone know yet why Schalke let him go? Was it personal reasons or to do with form/injuries?”

    It was injuries Jimbo, here’s what the head of Shalke said.

    “Schalke managing director Andreas Mueller said Lovenkrands was a high-quality striker but that “it no longer worked out with us over the last half year.”

    Lovenkrands, who arrived from Rangers in 2006 on a free transfer, was unlucky in being repeatedly hit by injuries, Mueller said.”
