Villa don't want Owen

Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill has denied reports that out-of-contract Newcastle United striker Michael Owen has been offered a two-year deal by his club.The Villa boss has played down suggestions that the club have already made an offer to the former Liverpool and Real Madrid star.
Owen is set to reduce his wage demands after commanding a six figure salary at St James' Park but Villa's proposed package would still have made him the highest paid player at the club.

Owen finished as Newcastle's leading scorer last season with 10 goals but his absence for lengthy periods was a key factor in them being relegated from the Premier League as they missed his predatory instincts in front of goal.

Everton could also be willing to offer Owen a route back into the Premier League as manager David Moyes is in the market for a new striker.

So where does Owen go next season?? Will he get BPL clubs ??
