Michael Owen May Be Available In Jan?

Michael Owen May Be Available In Jan?

Newcastle boss Joe Kinnear has said for the first time that former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker Michael Owen might leave in January.

Owen has been linked to a return to Liverpool but Rafa Benitez has said he isn't interested. Teams who are thought to be interested include Aston Villa (hurrah!) and Chelsea.

Kinnear said in the Independent:

'I'm not confident, to be honest. I'm going to sit down with Michael on Tuesday. I'm pretty confident about everybody else, but Michael is a different kettle of fish.'

Adding, 'He is looking at his options, I assume, but I won't go into those details until Tuesday.'

Big risk injury wise but he is only 29-years-old and is a world class (not a term used lightly) striker. Could he be the player who could get us 4th this season?

If he stayed fit he would certainly be the WOW player that Villa are surely ready for now? Bums on seats? Hmmm. I am willing to drive up to Newcastle to pick him up if needs be!!!!!

He's always injured. Pointless signing. Great player, but never fit, therefore pointless.

Article about this on the BBC site but suprisingly no seculation as to where he will go. Top four won't be interested surely, and we are the best of the rest, so why not?
