Owen contract latest

The latest talk coming from all the major news agencies is that Michael Owen is currently mulling over our latest contract offer. Having revealed that we hadn`t made an offer, both Owen and Joe Kinnear opened the door for further dialogue. JFK said:

'I`ve got a good relationship with Michael - I get on exceptionally well with the lad. I`d love him to stay, and we`ll put what we consider to be the best possible offer to Michael, and then the ball will be in Michael`s court.

Other than that, I can assure you Michael won`t be going (in the transfer window). With the money I`d get for Michael, being realistic, I couldn`t get anybody to score as many goals as Michael. Michael knows my feelings.'

Meanwhile Owen had earlier said:

'I haven`t spoken to the club about my contract despite all the speculation in the papers. I can`t do anything until I sit down and start negotiating. I feel I have a bit more to offer than just a six-month contract because I have a bit more to offer, having just turned 29! Like most of these things it is meant to be private - this has attracted it`s fair share of attention and we know things are never quiet in Newcastle.'

surely Ashley would rather something for him now rather than nothing in the summer?
