'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Owen does a Lampard

Much like last season`s 'will he, won`t he` contract saga suffered by Chelski fans over Frank Lampard, it looks like we`ll be in a similar position with Michael Owen after the striker decided to run down his contract and make a decision in the summer. Quite clever thinking by Owen who will allow the maximum possible time for one of the 'Big Four` (spit) clubs to come in for him.

The striker himself said:

'Following speculation about my future at Newcastle United, I have decided today to make it clear that I am committed to the club until at least the end of this season, and I have informed them I do not want to make a decision about my future until that time.

I hope this will be seen as a positive step and not seen as being disloyal in any way. I am happy here and enjoy the challenge. It is simply a matter of seriously thinking about my future as I was 29 last week and my next career decision is a crucial one.

My decision is not about money. I told the club some months ago that I would accept a reduction in my wages. I have no intention of leaving Newcastle United during the January transfer window and want to assure the fans that under Joe Kinnear's passionate management, I am committed with the rest of the players to ensure that the club ends the season on a high.'
