Kazenga LuLua Joins Brighton On Loan Again

Newcastle United have announced that their 20 year-old winger, Kazenga LuaLua, has joined Championship side Brighton on loan until 15th January next year.

LuaLua – third loan spell at Brighton

There was talk of Lualua moving permanently to Brighton earlier in the summer, so we have to assume Newcastle were not prepared to do that, but were prepared to loan the lad out again, but only until mid-January.

The 20 year old spent the first half of last season at Brighton on loan, where he played 11 times with four goals and was impressive, before breaking his leg at Hartlepool United last November.

In the previous season he had again played on loan at the south coast club, and again played 11 times in that spell.

Last season Kazenga made two substitute appearances for Newcastle at Chelsea, and at home to West Bromwich Albion, in the final games of the season.

This lad could still turn out to be a top player, so we’re pleased he hasn’t been sold, and that he will get first team games at Brighton next season, to further develop his skills.

In his career so far, the youngster has made 41 first team games with four goals.

    He’ll be playing in the new Amex Stadium, rather than the windy old field they used to play on

    Hope he gets plenty of game time. Think he’s going to be really good in a year or two so glad it’s not a permanent move.

    maybes not jonas but id have marveaux coming in from the right and having a crack with his left foot, to be honest id rather have those 2 on the left where they are used to playing and bring a natural right winger in

    Kebe is 27. Barton, Gosling and Jonas can all play RM though if Routledge goes I’d like to see a good pacey RW brought in to replace him.

    from last nights observations, Sammy Ameobi a lot in his cameo to suggest he could do a job if called upon. Quick, tricky and LEFT footed. Why do we insist on playing players out of position? Jonas is right footed and for whatever reason has always been deployed on the left.
    As a striker, you want the ball played in early to get in front of the defender, when you are a right or left footed player playing on the opposite wing, you have to check back taking that opportunity of an early ball away.
    Just an observation.
    I thought Cabaye looked an outstanding prospect. Clever on the ball, busy and liked a tackle. Ben Arfa was a bit rusty early on but grew into the game and looked biggest goal threat.
    Nice to see Gosling back too. Looked sharp.
    With Ferguson injury, our need for left back intensified!
    Vuckic also showed some good touches, although he was a bit lax in possession at times.

    Also, Best did well as a lone striker. Ranger was absolute hoop! Always on the back foot. Loan him out for much needed experience.

    i wouldnt mind seein sameobi start next season, yes he needs experience but he looked more than decent last, given that it was darlington but who knows maybe he could turn out to be like his big brother a newcastle lege…

    I didnt mate, The atmosphere was good natured til Sammy scored. Initially the pitch invasion was until a few idiots refused to get off.
    Several issues, taking into account 6000 fans had pre bought tickets and prob another 2 thousand paid on the door, the lack of security was a shambles!
    There were not enough stewards.
    The catering department couldnt cope either.
    Policing presence was embarrassing too.
    Fans being allowed to drink in the stadium too was silly.
    Im pretty sure that the game is classed as a “designated match” so banning orders can be given to those who entered pitch. Shame really but they only have themselves to blame.
    Re the lad who got ejected and caused the fight, I think he was spitting at fans which caused the kick off.

    great news, it will give us a better look at him in a better league before the step up to epl, it would have been a shame to see him sold.

    He’ll be off in January I reckon. You don’t get loaned to the same club three times without a view to buy.

    Hi All, according to our local paper, The Argus, this is a loan deal with the right to buy in January subject to fitness etc. So assuming he’s lost none of his pace due to his broken leg this is a permanent deal. Sorry guys, time to say farewell to Kaz.
