Keegan happy to hear Newcastle plan Owen contract talks

Kevin Keegan has welcomed comments from Newcastle United chairman Chris Mort that new contract talks are planned with Michael Owen.

"Michael is a wonderful player," the manager told Newcastle's official website. "I'm desperate to make sure we keep him here for a lot longer because you can build a team around players like him.

"He's in a fantastic run of form at the moment and looks like scoring a goal every time he goes out onto the football field."
