Stoke City striker Michael Owen is set to be offered a role with England when he retires at the end of the season.

Owen has decided to hang up his boots after a glittering career with Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Manchester United and England.

Club England managing director Adrian Bevington said: "Michael enjoyed a tremendous career with England, playing at every level. He has always conducted himself with outstanding professionalism when on England duty and performed at the highest level, scoring important goals at major tournaments.

"We are already in talks with Michael about how he can share his international experience with our younger players in the future in an ambassadorial role."
