Newcastle clinch Lovenkrands deal

Lovenkrands made 182 appearances for Rangers from 2000 to 2006

Newcastle United have signed former Rangers forward Peter Lovenkrands until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old Dane has impressed on a two-week trial after being released by German side Schalke earlier this term.

Lovenkrands will wear the number 24 shirt and could start at Manchester City in the Premier League next week.

"I'm delighted to sign a deal until the end of the season. I now just can't wait for my debut," Lovenkrands told the club's website.


Earlier this month, Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear said that if the Danish international did sign a short-term deal, his future at the club would then be discussed at the end of the season.
