Lovenkrands happy in England

26 May 2009 12:06
Peter Lovenkrands has confirmed he would like to remain in England at the end of his Newcastle contract. The Danish winger moved to St James' Park in the winter transfer window following a disappointing start to the season with Schalke. He only joined the Magpies on a six-month deal and is not expected to stay with the club following their relegation to the Championship. Lovenkrands' agent Ivan Marko Benes announced on Monday that he would welcome the opportunity to link up with another Premier League outfit. And the 29-year-old has now made it clear that he does not want to switch countries again ahead of the new campaign "I'd love to stay in England," Lovenkrands told TV2. "I will concentrate on enjoying the vacation with my family; my children and my wife. "And when the agent knows what's happening, he will contact me." Bitter pillLovenkrands admits he was deeply upset following Newcastle's 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on the final day of the season, when Damien Duff's own goal sealed their relegation. "It's a bitter pill to swallow," he told Ritzau. "That a goal like that would send us down." Lovenkrands, who scored three goals during his spell with the Magpies, added that he had been pleased with his overall contribution. He said: "It's gone better than all expectations. I have got a lot of playing time and scored many goals. It has been a fantastic experience."
