Norwich Not After Owen

Chris Hughton says there is no truth in the rumours that he is about to make an attempt to land ex-United striker Michael Owen.

The 32 year old has still to make his mind up where his future lies, but it won't be at Norwich.

Hughton told the Eastern daily Press: "Wow. Not that I am aware of.

"It is no surprise because at this stage of the window you get linked with lots of names that are not true. That is very much a new one to me. It is an area we are looking it to do something but that would have to be the right player."

Rugby Club Stoke City have been after Owen for what seems an age now and it's rumoured that they would not be able to afford his wages, which leaves Everton, who are also supposed to be chasing his signature.
