Perth Glory open talks with Stoke striker Owen

Australian club Perth Glory are in talks with Stoke City striker Michael Owen.

Australian club Perth Glory are in talks with Stoke City striker Michael Owen.

The Daily Mail says Glory are in talks with the management of high-profile striker Owen about bringing the former England player to Australia.

Owen, 33, made a name for himself at some of the world’s biggest clubs, spending nearly a decade at Liverpool before having stints at Real Madrid and Manchester United.

He is currently on the books at Stoke City, but has made just four appearances as a substitute for the English Premier League club this season.

Former Chelsea striker Billy Mehmet, frustrated by a lack of opportunity in Perth, will link up with Thai Premier League club Bangkok Glass FC next week after Glory agreed to release him today.
