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.
