Kazenga LuaLua has hinted today he is not too happy with his current situation at St. James’ Park.
Kazenga LuaLua – time to leave Newcastle?
The 19-year-old winger is now on loan at League One side Brighton for a month, and thart loan be extended if LuaLua does well.
The youngster has just not come through this season, as many had believed he would, for whatever reason.
He did have a groin injury earlier in the season, and since he’s returned, he’s not been able to get any games for Newcastle, even as a substitute.
Kazenga turned 19 in early December, and it may be time for him to assess his career, as it currently stands, at Newcastle United.
LuaLua talked to the the local Evening Chronicle today:
“I don’t really know about my future there. After this season I’ve got one more year.”I have been playing for Newcastle’s Reserves for about five years now.”
“And I don’t want to keep playing for the Reserves, so maybe in the summer it will be time for me to move. We’ll see what happens.”
“It has been disappointing at Newcastle, because at the start of the season I was playing and coming on as a sub.”
“Then, when I injured my ankle and groin, that was at a time when some of the other young players were pushing for a place, so it hasn’t been a good season for me.”
It really doesn’t look like Kazenga will be able to make a break-through any time soon at Newcastle, and it may indeed be best for both the player and the club that the youngster moves on.
Some Newcastle fans will no doubt say that the lad hasn’t been given much of a chance at the club.
However, it wouldn’t surprise us if Kazenga is on his way come the summer.
