Out-of-favour Lovenkrands eyeing a move away from Newcastle in January

Newcastle's Peter Lovenkrands is looking to leave in January.

The Denmark international, 31, has made just one Premier League start this season and is keen for more games.

He said: '(Manager) Alan Pardew would like to extend my contract, and there have been talks about doing it, but I can’t wait for that.

'In January, I can talk to whoever I want, so my agent is working to find me another club.'

Lovenkrands signed for the Magpies in January 2009 and left when his contract expired at the end of that season. But he returned for a second spell and signed a three-year deal in September 2009.

The Dane spent six years with Rangers and three years in Germany with Schalke before moving to Tyneside.
