Michael Owen

 Former Manchester United and England striker Michael Owen has signed for Stoke City.

The 32-year-old

left Old Trafford in May

and is a free agent.

The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and
Newcastle striker has 89 caps and 40 goals for his country, though he
has not played internationally since 2008. 

He spent three seasons at Manchester United but played
in only 52 games, netting 17 times. He made just four appearances for
the club last season.

Liverpool had earlier dismissed suggestions they were
keen to bring the former England striker back to Anfield. Everton and
Sunderland also distanced themselves from reports they had attempted to
sign Owen during the summer.

Owen’s career has been blighted by injury problems and
he has not played a competitive game since November last year because of
a thigh problem, which contributed to him starting just one Premier
League game in the last two seasons.

However, he has been staying fit for the current season using a
personal programme designed by the Manchester United coaches.

He recently admitted to frustration at the limited
opportunities given to him during his time working under Sir Alex
Ferguson, but denied suggestions that his time playing in the top flight
may have passed or that he was considering retiring from the game.

Owen becomes Stoke’s seventh signing of the summer,
following the arrivals of Jamie Ness, Geoff Cameron, Michael Kightly,
Maurice Edu, Charlie Adam and Steven N’Zonzi.
