Peter Lovenkrands is due for talks with the Newcastle club about a possible stay at Newcastle United
Peter Lovenkrands – we hope he stays
Peter signed a 6 months deal in January, and has looked good in the games he has played for the Magpies.
Peter is one of the few players that came out of this year with his pride still intact, because not only did Peter get 3 vital goals for the team, is very popular with other players, but he also has those vital ingredients of great skill and technique.
In short, we like this Danish lad, and when his agent announced he would look to play in higher level football next season, we had a sneaking suspicion his pregnant Scottish wife, whose folks live in Glasgow (they met while Peter was at Rangers from 2000), may have had other ideas. 😀
The reports today are that Peter is to have talks about a possible stay at St. James’ Park, according to his agent Ivan Marko Benes.
Benes told Sporten.dk:
“We have agreed with Newcastle that we will have a talk with them as soon as they know who will be the manager for the next season.” For Peter, Newcastle has priority.”
“We are waiting for Newcastle, but at the same time we know that Peter doesn’t have a contract for the next season so we are looking at other options.”
“But things are still not closed with Newcastle.”
Peter started 8 games for Newcastle, and made 4 sub appearances, and scored 3 goals this year.
Lovenkrands moved to Tyneside on a free transfer, following an unhappy time at German side Schalke 04, where his wife of two years, was just unable to settle in the country. And as we married men know, it’s important, very important – to keep the wife happy.
“If Momma Ain’t Happy Ain’t Nobody Happy”. 😀
We’d love to see Peter sign a new contract at Newcastle.
