Newcastle keeper Given: We can wait for Owen contract

Newcastle United goalkeeper Shay Given says it's crucial management secure Michael Owen to a new contract.

Owen is out of contract next summer and has been warned he faces a pay freeze at £120,000 a week if he wants to stay.

Given said: "He's a quality player but if it takes another six months and he signs then so be it. Negotiations of that size don't happen overnight."
