We are getting some word about how some of the players played yesterday, and indeed Newcastle will be signing Petter Lovenkrands through the end of the season, after Joe Kinnear has today said he thought Peter was excellent in the friendly game yesterday.
Peter Lovenkrands – was excellent yesterday
Speaking on Peter Lovenkrands, Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I’ve passed it to Derek Llambias, who is talking to Peter’s agent.”
“He’s thrashing out some sort of deal to the end of the season.”
“I thought he was excellent yesterday, and he’ll be an extra player for us. He’s done very well.”
So that’s some news we have been waiting for.
We assume that’s one through the door, even though it has cost the club nothing but wages for the Danish International.
Now we need five or six more through the door, in the next 12 days.
We could start by signing 20 year Finnish youngster Jukka Raitala, who from what we can gather, looks a good defender, who prefers left-back, and is only too willing to come to Newcastle United.
