Michael Owen Linked With Aston Villa (Again!)

Michael Owen Linked With Aston Villa (Again!)


Ha, the first bit of transfer gossip since the transfer window closed!

This could well be 2+2 eqaualling five but....!

The News Of The World reporter David Harrison says that Gerrard Houllier will enquire about availability of Manchester United striker Michael Owen in the January transfer window.

Apparently he'll look at a loan or a nominal fee after seeing Owen play in Jamie Carragher's testimonial game last weekend and being impressed with the former England strikers fitness.

Owen's Man Utd deal ends next summer.

Haha Houllier probably hasnt even got in his office or anything yet and the press are making up rubbish...It wouldnt actually be a bad thing,If our strikers are lacking goals come jan then why not get a striker who houllier knows well and can still score, also he will be available for peanuts! I say yes too a loan so we can get a younger one come summer.

You can never write a player of his quality off, no matter what poor run of form/injuries he's been through. I for one would be happy to see him here.

I'd question Owen's worth to any team these days - if he couldn't get a game for manure yesterday with Rooney out, then surely he's not good enough for the Villa?

good enough to put one past city though ay? You cant just lost quality he had, his fitness levels are as good as they have been for a very long time and berbatov is on form for united at the moment and + they only played the lone striker..Owen is a goalscorer noone can deny that and he would be a great signing temporarily in jan.

i'd take him on loan for the rest of the season, but don't think he's worth signing up on any kind of permament basis. Quality player to have around however!

i Woudnt mind Owen on a loan basis, would luv to see Lassana Diarra hear he is unhappy at Real Madrid?

No avdomfc, Tevez was not surplus to requirements, the rags just couldn't afford him.
