Newcastle striker Owen chooses Villa over Everton

Newcastle United striker Michael Owen wants to join Aston Villa.

The People says Owen will turn his back on Everton - and join his former Liverpool strike partner Emile Heskey at Aston Villa. The 29-year-old will reject the chance to sign for the Toffees, the team he supported as a boy, because of his links to Anfield.

A source said: "Michael is fully aware that Everton are interested. "But he made his name with Liverpool and joining their great rivals is something he feels uncomfortable about."

Moving to Villa will also be an easier commute from his home in Cheshire. Owen used a helicopter to commute to training at Newcastle.
