Luque Short-Changed? Get Away!

However, the Newcastle misfit claims his former club Deportivo La Coruna have done the same to him.

The Spanish striker is set to begin a season-long loan spell at PSV Eindhoven, and is about to take Deportivo to a civil court for 2.1 million Euros (£1.4 million) he claims they owe him.

Luque insists he is owed the money from the transfer fee paid by United for him in August 2005.

Luque: "The Deportivo president, Augusto Cesar Lendoiro, told me the transfer was 14 million Euros, so I have the right to 2.1 million Euros.

"I have tried to contact Lendoiro many times about this, but it was impossible. In August 2006, I sent a fax to the club claiming my money, and never had an answer."
