Sky Sports has just conformed that Peter has just signed for Newcastle, minutes before the deadline passed a few minutes ago.
Peter Lovenkrands – Newcastle United player again
Sky Sports is saying Peter rejected two previous offers from Newcastle, because he was not too happy with, but finally signed the Dane. We assume the deal he has now is not as good as the 6 months deal he had earlier this year – but that is hardly surprising.
But this is a good signing for the side because Peter is class, and can play at striker or on either wing, and he can score those goals, which we’ll need this season if we are to be promoted. In 12 appearances he has scored 3 goals.
We understand Peter will wear the No.11 jersey for Newcastle and is in line to make his second debut (?), when Newcastle travel to Cardiff City on September 13th.
And news just in that it’s a 3 year deal he’s signed, so it looks like Peter is guaranteed another two seasons in the Premier League with Newcastle. 😀
But Newcastle seem to have failed to sign center-back Matthew Kilgallon from Sheffield United, as the deal didn’t get done before the transfer deadline, which has now passed.
We await official word from the Newcastle club as to who officially we have signed today.
But it doesn’t look like we’ve made too many signings, although we seem to have kept all the players we had this morning, and that’s good news, and something that Chris Hugton almost promised us.
