Newcastle boss Keegan staying clear of Owen contract talks

Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan admits he's staying clear of new contract talks with Michael Owen.

"Contracts aren't my department," he told the Sunday Sun.

"I've had a chat with Michael but I don't do any of the contracts anymore. In some ways I am pleased about that.

"It might be difficult for the players but I have to tell them what my role is in the club - to say: 'Go to Chris Mort and sit down with him and Dennis Wise because they do the financial side of things.'"
