Hodgson in no hurry to offer 'happy' Bullard extended deal

The Fulham manager Roy Hodgson is adamant midfielder Jimmy Bullard will not be getting a new contract any time soon despite his recent call-up to the England squad by Fabio Capello.

Fabio Capello does not believe that Owen is fit enough to play for England in the forthcoming 2010 World Cup qualifiers but without both these players, whom does he expect to score his goals?
