Owen In A 'Win-Win' Situation!

Former Toon hero Andy Cole feels Owen, who is obviously frustrating the Toon fans by not committing himself to the club, is in a win-win situation with his own future.

Man City are said to be interested ... but with the amount of money they have at their disposal, they could by ANYONE ... and Owen's injury prone time on Tyneside will have been noted.

Andy Cole: "He is at a big club which is at a difficult stage and he has to see what the options are.

"He has to see what happens first before he signs a new deal. He's in a win-win situation.

"Once people get to the end of their contracts, there will always be clubs after them. The only way he won't be in a good situation is if he gets badly injured.

"He might stay at the end of the season. We will just have to see what happens."

Personally, I don't see many clubs willing to take a chance on him, especially as his wages are £108,000 per week.

Even when he left Real Madrid, there was only Newcastle and Wigan in for him ... and Wigan wanted him to half his wages.
