Newcastle struggling to find Owen buyer

Newcastle United are struggling to find takers for Michael Owen.

The People says the Magpies are prepared to cut their losses after just 21 games in two-and-a-half years from the 28-year-old.

Owen is set to return against Derby next week after once more picking up an injury when on international duty.

Newcastle will accept a cut-price £8m but the player's recent injury record is scaring off England's big four.

Owen's salary - £105,000- a-week - is also hindering any hopes of finding the forward a new club.
