Luque Plea: 'Come Get Me'
Albert Luque made a brief appearance in the Portsmouth match, but again looked like a fish out of water.
Does the Spanish forward REALLY have the heart for the Premiership? Apparantly not, and following his big-money switch from Deportivo La Coruna at the start of last season, he has asked a Spanish club to end his nightmare.
The list of clubs interested are like a who's who of Spanish football - Barcelona, Real Madrid, Real Mallorca, Valencia, etc.
Luque: 'I will play for another month and there must be a change then. If there is no change then maybe an option that is better for Newcastle and better for me, is to go.
'It's been very difficult not playing regularly. I am happy at Newcastle but I have to play.
'I know of the interest from Barcelona, and I would be interested.'
