He’s a lovely lad is Michael Owen, but after his half-hour interview on SKY TV, never think that Alan Shearer is boring ever again.

God forbid … the 26-year old had the nation in slumber as (in true Shearer fashion) he skipped and dodged everything that was thrown at him. But one thing came out of it … he is staying at Newcastle.

Freddy Shepherd: ‘Michael is on a four-year contract with us and we do not see any reason why he will not see that out. It’s a simple as that.’

This was the first time Shepherd has made a comment about Owen since the £17m transfer.

As for Owen? Well, he said the same: ‘I signed a four year contract and I will be returning to Newcastle after the World Cup.’
