Brown: Hull will go extra mile for Newcastle's Owen

Hull City boss Phil Brown is ready to go the extra mile to bring Newcastle United striker Michael Owen to the KC.

He told talkSPORT: "Breaking the bank is not a term the chairman would be keen on. But he's certainly someone that you would push the boat out for. He's a world-class international footballer.

"There's been a lot of documentation about injuries and being unable to fulfil contracts because he can't get on the field of play.

"But as far as I'm concerned, with a good pre-season under his belt, he's still a quality player and if I could sit around the table with Michael Owen I would be interested in doing that.

"It would be exciting to get someone through the door that could possibly score you 15 or 20 goals a season. That would be a fantastic achievement."
