Magpies striker wanted back in Spain

Levante are keen to take Newcastle's Albert Luque back to Spain. The Spanish striker has struggled to make an impact at St James' Park since his £9.5million move from Deportivo La Coruna in 2005. Luque has managed only 14 starts in his first two seasons and the Magpies are believed to be ready to loan the 29-year-old to the Valencian outfit.

Levante tried to sign the player last January but have renewed their interest after failing to secure a deal for Brazilian striker Baiano. Luque has been in good form for the Mapies in this season's warm-up games chipping in with three goals in two outings against Celtic and Juventus.
