News today that will interest Newcastle fans on the status of Michael Owen’s contract.
Michael Owen – how many millions did they say they were giving me?
Newcastle Manager Keegan expects England striker Michael Owen to sign a new contract with the club shortly.
Kevin talked to BBC Radio this morning and said:
“Hopefully, that will be sorted out within the next two or three weeks,”
We believe that Newcastle have given Kevin some assurances they will be able to reach an agreement with the Newcastle captain on his new contract.
And the news yesterday that a source close to Owen said he would leave the club on a free transfer next summer, if he couldn’t reach a deal with the club was probably not true.
Indeed getting some of our players back and ready for the new season, is almost as important as bringing new players in.
If we can get Michael Owen, Joey Barton and Oba Martins fit and ready to go for the Manchester United game, then we’ll be in pretty good shape.
Kevin has repeatedly said he wants to keep all the good players he already has at the club, and build the team around Michael for the future, and he for one will be relieved when Michael finally signs his new contract at the club.
So will we.
Comments very welcome.
