Lovenkrands May Go Out On Loan To Cardiff City


Newcastle striker Peter Lovenkrands is a loan target for Championship promotion chasers Cardiff.

Peter Lovenkrands – may go out on loan to Cardiff City

News today that 22 times capped Danish International  Lovenkrands wants regular first-team football, and may be sent out on loan to Cardiff City.

19 year-old midfielder Haris Vuckic is already at Cardiff for a month long loan deal, and it turns  out that Malky Macakey, the Cardiff manager and Alan Pardew are good friends.

Obviously Mackay is keen to get as many good players into the club as possible,  as the Cardiff  City side push to join Swansea City in the Premier League next season, and Peter could certainly do a job for the Welsh club.

But with Leon Best out for the season with a knee ligament injury, who will Newcastle have in case of Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse  picking up injuries?

Shola Ameobi?

Peter has been at Newcastle for just over three years now and in 83 appearances for Newcastle, the 32 year-old former Glasgow Rangers striker has 29 goals,  and as a free transfer was an excellent signing for the club.

The news is in the Daily Mirror, and 39 year-old Mackay is close to Newcastle manager Alan Pardew,  from their days together at West Ham United, when Alan was the manager and Malky was a center-back at the club, before he moved to Watford in 2005 on a free transfer.

We’d be very surprised if Peter goes out on loan,  although maybe a month long loan would be okay, but if one of Newcastle’ strikers were injured he would need to be recalled.

Peter will be hoping to get some games to attract some clubs in the summer, when his contract runs out at Newcastle and he becomes a free agent.

Lovenkrands is still a good player and a natural striker, but he  hasn’t been given many chances at Newcastle this season.

Comments welcome.

    I do have a soft spot for Lovenkrands. I always want him to do well. he’s done so much for our team. Be good if he got first team football.
    who would cover our strikers if he goes?

    Indian will shaking in his shoes – this means Shola would be first in line as a replacement striker 🙂

    Reckon if he went on loan then an academy/reserve prospect may come through to the bench. Be good to see more young’ns get games since we’re fairly comfortable.

    Seeing as Lovern is far more mobile than Shola would rather him stay and Shola go out on loan. Someone on here said that Abeid would be going out on loan as well as soon as Tiore was back

    Might mean Benny would get the nod in the No.10 role occasionally…then again maybe not

    @ ibiza – I agree – clear to see pardew doesnt trust HBA in midfield…

    4 strikers are the dembae, shola and HBA – prob in that order

    He needs to stay for Cover. If we’re going to loan anybody out loan out Ferguson & Abeid so they can get some first team matches and come back the better next season.

    Lovenkrands should STAY because we need backup strikers. He is our 3rd striker behind Ba and Papis

    I also wish Shola Ameobi will be on loan but the thing is NO CLUB WANT HIM – felt sorry for him
