The former Rangers star has not featured in any games (league or pre-season) this summer, and he knows it will take time to get back to top form.
Peter Løvenkrands: “I’m delighted to be back at Newcastle and this gives me a bit of security. I can move my family here now and really get on with making this a success.
“I have been keeping very fit by training with Rangers and I feel fine and ready to go.
"But there is a difference between ‘running fit’ and ‘match fit’. Hopefully it won’t take too long. The ultimate aim is to be in the Premier League next season and the lads have had a great start.”
