Peter would Love to say at Newcastle United

WAITING GAME: Peter Lovenkrands
WAITING GAME: Peter Lovenkrands

PETER Lovenkrands has put all thoughts about his future on hold until the summer.

Instead, the Newcastle United striker is focusing on getting fully fit and raising money for the Alzhemier’s Society, in memory of his late father.

Lovenkrands, out of contract in the summer, is sidelined with a thigh problem.

In the summer the 32-year-old will discuss his future with the club, which will need a larger squad next season to cope with the demands of European football.

“My contract’s up at the end of the season, and I need to wait to see what happens,” Lovenkrands told Sportmail.

“I don’t know, I’ll have to wait and see. I’ll have to see what the plans are with Europe.

“If we are in the Champions League, though, we’ll need a bigger squad than normal. There could be a chance of me staying.

“I’d love to, of course, but we’ll have to see when the summer holidays come.”
