England striker Michael Owen could return to action for Newcastle over the Christmas holiday after resuming full training.

The 28-year-old has not played since tearing a thigh muscle in England´s 1-0 friendly victory over Austria on November 16, and has managed only eight starts for his club all season.

But when asked if Owen could be involved soon, manager Sam Allardyce said: "Yes, he could be. It could be a small contribution."
