KK Eager To Finalise Owen Deal, Soon!

KK Eager To Finalise Owen Deal, Soon!

Kevin Keegan believes that the Toon should get the contract offer to Michael Owen sorted out and to him sooner rather than later, or he fears they could lose him: 'He has every right to be free at the end of the season and go anywhere he wants,' Keegan told The People. 'That's why I said eight weeks ago we should tie him up. If we don't, and we lose him, then what can I say?

'It shouldn't happen and it probably won't happen. But it could. He's not knocking the door down saying what's happening and I'm not pushing things either.

'I said what I said and I think Michael knows how I feel. In a playing sense, he's been asked different questions and the answers he's coming up with are world class.

'In the position he's playing in for us, nobody in the world could do a better job. He's linking us up and scoring goals.

'Instead of having one player up front we've got two. It's like we're playing with 12 men sometimes.'

Owen will be out of contract at the end of the 2008/2009 season, so unless he agrees a new deal between now and then he will be able to leave on a free transfer. However it would be unlikely to go to that and he would probably be sold before that time if no deal is agreed, with the reported offer that would be put to him so far failing to materialise.

Will the Toon lose Owen if he doesn't get offered this contract sooner rather than later? Will he still be at St James' next season?
