Peter Lovenkrands has been offered the chance to return to St James’s Park this season.
Peter Lovenkrands – will he rejoin Newcastle?
The Evening Chronicle is reporting that the Danish international – who has not been able to find a club this summer – has been approached by Newcastle with a new deal on the tablke.
We had mentioned recently that Newcastle should sign Lovenkrands because he offers a different option up front.
Lovenkrands was sent a letter in July, saying he shouldn’t bother reporting for training on July 1st, because his contract would not be renewed, and he has not yet decided whether to come back to Newcastle.
With that shoddy treatment he may think twice about coming back, or he may just be waiting to see who the new manager will be on Tyneside, which we’re hoping to learn by the end of this week.
But Peter can also play on either wing, and is quick, and he would be a great addition to our squad for this season.
Peter had a six-month loan spell at St James’s earlier this year and he scored 3 good goals in his 12 games for the Newcastle club, and he was well liked by both the fans and the players.
There is no doubt the return of the 29-year-old would provide a welcome addition for Chris Hughton, who is down to a very small squad in terms of numbers.
Lovenkrands has been using the training facilities of his old club Rangers in Glasgow , but there is no offer of a playing contract at Ibrox apparently.
Peter said today:
“Staying in the UK is still my first priority, but I do not want to rule out anything right now.”
A source close to the player told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Peter has been offered the chance to come back to Newcastle and is giving it some thought.”
We hope Peter signs for the club, and we’re not sure why he wasn’t signed up much sooner, but he may want to wait to see what state the club will be in next week.
After all, it’s been in a complete mess these last 12 weeks, since we were relegated.
