LuaLua considers Newcastle future
Lomana LuaLua
Newcastle's Lomana LuaLua is unhappy at his lack of first-team football and may seek a move away from the club, according to reports.

The striker has spent most of the season on the bench despite injuries to Craig Bellamy and Alan Shearer.

"It has got to the point where I wonder what I am doing here, playing reserve games," said Lualua.

"I'm not being given a chance - some players might be happy to sit in the reserves and pick up their wages, but that's not what I am about."

The DR Congo skipper said he also has his international future to think about and hinted he would consider a loan move to kick-start his career.

"I am the captain of my country and it doesn't look good when people back home are starting to ask why I'm not playing for Newcastle," he added.

"All you want is a run of four or five games to show what you can do - you need to be able to play.

"I look at Mikael Forssell on loan at Birmingham, who is clearly benefiting from playing regularly.

"I just want a fair chance."
