Manchester United striker Michael Owen could be poised to join either Everton or Sunderland at the end of the season, according to a report in The
Owen, 31, has struggled to establish himself at Old Trafford since signing on a free transfer from Newcastle United in the summer of 2009, and Manager Sir Alex Ferguson has recently expressed his regret at not being able to play him more often.
It is thought that with little opportunity left at Manchester United, Owen will leave in search of first team football at the end of the season. Steve Bruce at Sunderland is thought to have made an approach during the January transfer window, and Everton are also keen on the ex-Liverpool man.
Owen has scored four goals in 25 appearances for the Red Devils.
