Stoke boss Pulis still keen on ex-Man Utd striker Owen

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis hasn't forgotten about released Manchester United striker Michael Owen.

The Sentinel says any contract for the 32-year-old would have to be weighted heavily towards his playing record following his poor fitness record in recent years.

Even then, Pulis may have to make considerable room on his wage bill to accommodate a player used to earning in excess of £50,000-a-week in the past.

Owen would be handled sensitively at the Britannia to try to ensure his consistent fitness, and that would include deploying him largely as an impact player from the bench.
