Owen still confident of finding new club

The former Livepool and Real Madrid striker, who has had a career blighted by injury, remains confident of finding a club following his release from Manchester United this summer

Former England international Michael Owen remains unattached following the end of the transfer window, but the striker still remains hopeful that he will return to Premier League action soon.

The 32-year-old, who made 89 appearances and scored 40 goals for England, was released by Manchester United in the summer and, thus, has no time restriction on when he can join a team due to being a free agent.

And the player remains confident that he will find a new team sooner than later, and has hinted that negotiations with possible suitors will be easier now the transfer window has closed with managers being able to assess the layout of their squad without the pressure of deadline day.

"Nothing to confirm just yet, will be an interesting few days now that the transfer window is closed,” Owen wrote on his Twitter account.

Stoke City and Everton were reportedly keen on signing the former Liverpool and Real Madrid forward, who has had a career blighted by injury.
