Everton, Hull City declare interest in Owen

Everton, Hull City declare interest in Owen

Newcastle United striker Michael Owen, who is out of contract on 30 June, 2009 is set to decide his future after club representatives from Hull City, and Everton contacted the player, and declared publicly of the interest to sign him.

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen confirmed his club's interest in signing the 29-year-old, but 'on the right terms'.

Everton boss David Moyes is also keen on the Chester-born player, but is set to offer him a much lower wage-package than Newcastle United currently pay him.

On £120,000 a week, Owen currently costs the club around £5.8 million a year in salary, and would be a welcome exit along with out of contract first-teamers Mark Viduka, and Claudio Cacapa.

The trio would free up somewhere in the region of £12 million, which would cut the wage-bill of the club from a staggering £74 million down to a less staggering £62 million.

I think you guys would be justified in saying: "Good Riddance." Shearer gave him his chance for glory and he just could't rise to the challenge.
