Owen near Premier League move

Michael Owen should be back in Premier League football soon, following ongoing talks with a number of clubs. Reported by ESPN, the 32-year-old has been speaking about his future within football and his ambition to stay within the game, he has also admitted it has taken him a while because the decision has to be the right one. He said:

“As with a lot of these situations, transfer windows and things like that, a lot of things happen later on in the window when people are refreshing their squads and things like that.”

“So, yes, I have been in contact with quite a few teams and I definitely expect to be donning a new shirt quite soon. I’ve spoken to quite a few teams and it’s a case of picking the best which is going to suit me and my family. I’ve said before that I’d prefer the Premier League and that remains the case.”

The striker has been without a club since being released by Manchester United at the end of his contract this year. The player and the club came to a mutual agreement following a lack of playing time for the former Liverpool and Real Madrid star.

His desire to stay in the Premier League could see him reach new records should he overcome the injury battles that have kept him on the sidelines at Old Trafford in past seasons. With three clubs so far in the English top flight – Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester United – he has scored 149 goals in 317 games.

The 2001 Ballon D’or winner has been linked heavily with Stoke City as well as speculation linking him with a move to Fulham and Everton. So far Owen has kept his cards close to his chest, choosing to just say he will come back when the time and offer is right.
