Owen wants Premier League stay if he leaves Man Utd

Manchester United striker Michael Owen doesn't want to drop out of the Premier League if he is released at the end of the season.

Owen is off contract in June.

"As long as I'm wanted at a good level I will play on, but part of that is in my hands and part isn't. I'll wait to see what the manager says on that," he said.

"If it happens, great, we'll talk about it. If not, I'll try to stay at a high level. I wouldn't drop out of the Premier League.

"I want to stay at the top level or look at other markets, but I have four children and they're settled in school and that's something to weigh up.

"There are a couple of possibilities when I've finished and media might interest me. Gary Neville is a breath of fresh air and has almost encouraged me to do it.

"I get excited when it's half-time now because he's so intelligent and brings something new to it."
