Newcastle keen to discuss Owen contract

Newcastle United are ready to discuss a new contract with Michael Owen.

Chairman Chris Mort believes Newcastle's recent turnaround in fortunes under Kevin Keegan will convince Owen to extend his stay on Tyneside.

"I think all the players are enjoying playing under Kevin - you can see that in the way they play," Mort said. "I would imagine Michael was in that camp as well.

"He seems to be enjoying his game. He has got his contract this year and next year but it obviously makes sense to sit down with Michael and secure him for the long term if we can.

"I know that Kevin is very fond of Michael so I would hope that we could sit down and do something."
