Man Utd striker Owen not interested in Villa rumours

Manchester United striker Michael Owen has dismissed talk of interest from Aston Villa.

Gérard Houllier, once his manager at Liverpool, has been contemplating trying to recruit him for Aston Villa, but Owen says he is not tempted to start talking to potential buyers, even though his contract expires at the end of the season and there have been no indications from Old Trafford about whether he will be offered new terms.

"I never thought I would start every game when I joined the club and I have never complained about anything," he told the Guardian. "I signed a two-year contract, I'm only 60% into that and hopefully we will talk [about extending it] before the end of the season."
