Nothing in Owen’s Everton link


Michael Owen has played down reports linking him with Everton.

The 32-year-old is available on a free transfer this summer, having left Manchester United upon the expiry of his contract. Owen is hanging on for another move within the Premier League, after ruling out dropping down a division into the Championship.

It has been widely reported that the former Liverpool striker could return to Merseyside and join the Toffees, who he supported as a boy. However, having been inundated with enquiries on twitter, he replied: "Just rumours".

Stoke City are also thought to be interested in signing Owen, as Tony Pulis looks to boost a strike force which scored the fewest goals in the league last season.
