Owen to keep Newcastle waiting over contract offer

Michael Owen is in no rush to sign a new deal at Newcastle United.

The Guardian says Owen remains keen to see what other bids are made in January when he is able to open negotiations with rival clubs ahead of a Bosman free transfer in June.

A planned meeting between Owen and the Newcastle manager, Joe Kinnear, did not take place yesterday, but the two are expected to discuss the issue informally at the club's training ground later today.

Everton, Tottenham and Manchester City have been linked with Owen.
