You missed something


Michael Owen has told Newcastle United he will not make a decision on his future until the end of the season.

However, the 29-year-old has ended speculation that he could leave Tyneside in January by committing himself to the club until the end of his current contract.

In a statement released on his behalf on Monday evening, Owen also confirmed he had indicated he is willing to take a pay cut if he decides his future lies with the Magpies.

Owen said: "Following speculation about my future at Newcastle United, I have decided today to make it clear that I am committed to the club until at least the end of this season, and I have informed them I do not want to make a decision about my future until that time.

"I hope this will be seen as a positive step and not seen as being disloyal in any way.

"I am happy here and enjoy the challenge. It is simply a matter of seriously thinking about my future as I was 29 last week and my next career decision is a crucial one.

"My decision is not about money. I told the club some months ago that I would accept a reduction in my wages.

"I have no intention of leaving Newcastle United during the January transfer window and want to assure the fans that under Joe Kinnear's passionate management, I am committed with the rest of the players to ensure that the club ends the season on a high.


No surgery for Cesc
Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has confirmed he will not be undergoing an operation on his damaged knee.




Fabregas travelled to Barcelona on Tuesday to consult specialist doctor Ramon Cugat about the problem he picked up during Sunday's Barclays Premier League draw with Liverpool when he was tackled by Xabi Alonso.

The injury is set to keep the Gunners captain sidelined for around four months but it will not require the Spain international to go under the knife.

Fabregas said: "After consulting with the best doctor possible, we've decided not to operate. If it would have been necessary it would have been the first thing I would have done but the doctor recommended to me not to do it because I'm young and the meniscus is not damaged.

"Although we cannot be certain because the injury only happened a few days ago, I will be out for more or less four months. My intention is to return as soon as possible to help my team-mates."

Partial Rupture

Fabregas is expected to be out of action until April after suffering a partial rupture to his medial knee ligament.

Manager Arsene Wenger feels his skipper may only be back for the final month of the campaign but said: "I believe we are able to do it (without him).

"We have to find a way and we want to find a way to compensate for the fact he is not on the pitch to give everyone a bit more.

"I'm sure we can deal with it. When he comes back he can help us get over the line in the final months."


Figueroa Latics deal made permanent
Wigan Athletic's Maynor Figueroa has turned his loan move from Deportivo Olimpia into a long-term deal.




Figueroa, 25, has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract after Wigan and the Honduran side agreed a fee.

He has been the only Wigan player to start every Barclays Premier League match this season and manager Steve Bruce said: "I think he can have a great career with us."

Figueroa signed on loan in January 2008 after initially coming on trial and made his full debut in the final match of last season against Manchester United.

Bruce has been impressed with how the player has settled in England.

foreign country

He said: "From day one I've been impressed with Maynor's attitude and his professionalism. It's always hard when you come into a foreign country when you don't know anybody and you can't speak the language.

"He has done well for us this season and is now getting used to the rigours of the Premier League. He's strong, quick and powerful and I think the best is yet to come from him."

Figueroa intends to make the most of his time at the JJB Stadium.

He said: "To play in the Premier League has always been a dream for me and I am really happy that Wigan have offered me the chance to stay here. I have had to take every stage as it comes this last 12 months but thankfully it has gone okay for me.

"Now I look forward to being a Wigan player for the next few seasons. I want to thank Steve Bruce for having faith in me and I hope I can repay him by serving the club to the best of my abilities during my time here."

Ferguson: No need to buy
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be happy to see out the season with the current crop of players at his disposal.

Ferguson has confirmed he has no intention of recruiting top names when the window reopens next week.

He said: "I do not think there will be any January transfers. I am happy with what I have got."

Instead his focus remains on ensuring United are on the shoulders of the Barclays Premier League leaders going into 2009.


United face Stoke City on Boxing Day buoyed by the fact they are now Club World Champions after defeating LDU Quito in Japan on Sunday.

And Ferguson feels they have the personnel to cope with remainder of the campaign.

Extra protection

He added: "We are probably going to bring back a couple of young players who have been on loan. That may just give us extra protection.

"We took 23 players to Japan and they are very substantial players. I would be happy to play any one of them.

"Winning the competition was a great boost to the club and the players. It was a great achievement and the important thing was they played well.

"They showed good enthusiasm through the matches and good concentration. We have come through it well."

Redknapp backs Bale to come good
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has backed Gareth Bale to fulfil his potential at White Hart Lane

However he admits the Wales youngster needs to toughen up and work on his defending.

Bale, 19, arrived from Southampton in a deal worth £10m at the start of last season and was hailed as one of the finest young left-backs around - but he is currently behind Benoit Assou-Ekotto in the pecking order.


There is also the lingering statistic that Bale has not featured in a Barclays Premier League win yet, although he did spend most of last season sidelined through injury.

Great athlete

"Eventually that will change," Redknapp said. "I see him as a great left-back eventually. But he has to learn the game and become a stronger defender to become a great left-back. But he has everything in his locker to be a great player.

"It's parts of his games like the one on ones, things like that. We just need to toughen him up a bit but he's got everything else. He's a great athlete and has a great left foot.

"He's got the potential to become a great footballer. At the moment Benoit has been playing very well."

Sbragia has money to spend
Sunderland's caretaker manager Ricky Sbragia has been informed he will have money to spend in January.

The decision from the Black Cats board suggests that they are in no rush to find a permanent replacement for the departed Roy Keane.

Sbragia remains among the favourites to land the post, and the backing he has now received indicates that the Stadium of Light hierarchy have full faith in him.

The experienced coach has already identified a list of possible transfer targets, with an experienced defender topping his New Year wish list.

"I've put forward a suggestion about bringing someone in and that is being looked at," Sbragia said.

"It's early days yet and I haven't got a name but the position I'm looking at is defence, because I think we're a bit thin there.

"I'll be looking at bringing in an experienced Premiership defender. I don't think we'll look abroad, simply because I think it takes time to get used to the Premiership and to settle in - the time to bring those sort of players in, is perhaps summer.

What's happening

"Who the player is, we'll have to wait and see. We'll look to buy an experienced Premiership defender but if that doesn't work out there's always use of the loan system and, of course, we have an experienced loan player in Paul McShane whose spell at Hull City is something we might look at."

Sunderland currently have 11 players out on loan at other clubs and Sbragia admits he will look into each case individually over the coming weeks.

He said: "I've got to be honest and say I'm really not sure what's happening with the loans but it should become a lot clearer after today (Tuesday).

"I've managed to speak to some of the lads who have been out on loan, like Greg Halford and Anthony Stokes at Sheffield United. But we have to look at the nuts and bolts of all these deals to see what the situation is with them all individually.

"There are some players who have been moved out with a view to them moving on, and that won't change. But there are others that we will have to look at more closely and we will look to sort that out soon."
