Kristensen made 98 appearances for United between 1989 and 1992, and the ex-Denmark international hopes Lovenkrands will be a success.

Bjorn Kristensen (talking to the Chronicle): "Peter is a great guy and I think he will fit in really well at Newcastle.

"I like him as a player - he has plenty of speed. Once he gets on top of his game he is a real threat to the opposition.

"We saw that time and time again in Scotland and for Denmark. I feel he can become a crowd-pleaser at Newcastle.

"I know he has missed a lot of games with injuries, but once any player regains their consistency they can come back alive.

"I know what it's like at Newcastle, and it's all about Peter having a good start.

"If he does OK in his first three or four games it can snowball."
