Newcastle's Given: New contract for Owen a matter of urgency

"It is between Michael and the club, but in an ideal world we would all like his contract sorted out sooner rather than later," said Given.

"At the same time though, he has got the rest of the season with his current contract.

"He has got a presence about him.

"Michael is a world renowned centre-forward and a world renowned goalscorer. When he leads us out, it sends a message to other teams.

"It tells them that we have some real quality in our side. He is the most world renowned player we have at the club."
