Peter Lovenkrands

Newcastle striker Peter Lovenkrands' season could be over because of injury.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew has confirmed the Denmark international, whose contract expires in the summer, may not play again this term because of a thigh problem.

Pardew said: "We have got a bad injury this week - Peter Lovenkrands has really hurt his thigh."

He added: "We are not sure yet, but he's definitely torn it and he might have ruptured it, so we think that's him for the season, actually, which is a very big blow for him with his contract up and everything."

Lovenkrands, who joined the club as a free agent under former boss Chris Hughton after a successful loan spell, has been used sparingly this season, but came on as a substitute in last Sunday's 1-1 derby draw with Sunderland.
