The former Rangers forward has played a key role in recent weeks in helping the Magpies cement their place in the Premier League and Lovenkrands feels "resilience" was one of the key factors.
But with new faces certain to arrive on Tyneside this summer, the Dutchman is eager for the summer captures to fit into the Newcastle ethos.
Lovenkrands told the Journal: "We've shown we can go to some of the toughest grounds in the country and get a result, and you don't do that unless you have a real togetherness and belief in the dressing room.
"You need that if you're going to achieve anything. We have to make sure we take it into next year. Then we can look to do the same things we've done this year, because we can be pleased with the progress we've made."
