"We've seen this season what Michael can bring to Newcastle and we're fortunate to have someone with his qualities in our squad," said the 21-year-old. "We've got options up front as it is, but Michael Owen brings something different to anyone else in the Premier League. You could put him into anyone's team, anywhere in the world and he would improve it. It's great to have him back and I hope he'll continue the good form that he has been in."
