Rich Posted May 25, 2009 Share Posted May 25, 2009 Breaking News: United Rekindle Lov Affair By Craig Hope NEWCASTLE United have completed the re-signing of Danish striker Peter Lovenkrands on a three-year deal. The 29-year-old, a free agent since May, returns to the club having spent the second half of last season at St.James' Park. In that time Lovenkrands became something of a fans' favourite among the Toon Army as he netted three times from 12 outings. The former Rangers and Schalke forward will wear the No.11 jersey for the black and whites and is in line to make his debut when the Geordies travel to Cardiff City on September 13. Such was Lovenkrands' instant popularity on Tyneside that, during his full debut at West Brom in February, fans chanted "Signed on a free from Germany, Peter Lovenkrands" long after the full-time whistle having watched him net during a 3-2 victory. He was again on target in the 2-1 home defeat against Manchester United before notching during the 3-0 win over Middlesbrough in May http://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10278~1784541,00.html Starts with Peter Lovenkrands, of all people: Lovenkrands looking for contract Winger keen to secure top-flight football By Richard Torgerson Newcastle's Peter Lovenkrands could leave St James' Park in search of top-flight football, according to the winger's agent. The Magpies were relegated on the final day of the Premier League season as they lost 1-0 at Aston Villa to bring to an end 16 years in the pinnacle division. Lovenkrands' six-month deal in the North East is due to expire in June and his agent, Ivan Marko Benes, has confirmed that the Dane is looking to extend his stay in England. But the 29-year-old is also keen to play in a principal league, claims Benes, meaning Newcastle, who will be playing Championship football in 2009/10, may not be an option. "We are looking for a new contract for Peter in England," Benes told Bold.dk. "Most players want to play in the top division, so Peter is no different." Lovenkrands had hinted earlier in May that he was keen to extend his stay on Tyneside. Source: SkySports.com Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
