But the turmoil at St James' Park following Keegan's exit as manager earlier in the month shows no sign of abating, with Newcastle appointing London-based investment bank Seymour Pierce to handle the sale of the club on Monday.
Owner Mike Ashley wants to sell the club after fan protests against him, and hopes Seymour Pierce chairman Keith Harris, who was involved in selling Chelsea to Roman Abramovich in 2003, can help.
But Owen confessed the players are as clueless as the supporters about Newcastle's long-term future.
"We are as much in the dark as the fans and it does not make it any easier as Kevin Keegan was very popular," said the England striker, who has already played under Graeme Souness, Glenn Roeder, Sam Allardyce and Keegan since arriving in August 2005.
"You almost become immune to these happenings in football nowadays and I have seen plenty in my time."
Newcastle split rumours are nonsense - Harper
Goalkeeper Steve Harper, who was at the club during Keegan's first stint as manager in the 1990s, labelled his team "an easy target" but insisted they could pull together.
"People talk about 11 or 12 players wanting to leave - I have been in that dressing room for a long time, but recently, I have not heard one person say they want to leave this club," said Harper.
"We are a small, tight-knit squad, but we have got experienced characters in there and there are no splits in the camp, no rumblings of people wanting to leave. That's nonsense, to be honest."
