Perth Glory have revealed Michael Owen's representatives have been in contact to enquire about the possibility of a move to Australia.
The 33-year-old joined Stoke City in the summer after his contract with Manchester United expired but has struggled to make an impression at the Britannia Stadium.
Owen hasn't made a start in the Premier League due to a combination of injuries and the form of the likes of Peter Crouch, Kenwyne Jones and Jonathan Walters.
With his contract at Stoke coming to a conclusion in the summer it appears as though the former England hitman is already looking for his next club - if Perth Glory are to be believed.
"Michael Owen's agent has enquired about Michael playing in the A-League," the club's spokesman told the West Australian newspaper.
"Perth Glory are interested but are yet to find out Michael's terms and conditions. Until these are known, Perth Glory will not enter any further negotiations."
