Owen: Everton talk ‘just rumours’
The 32-year-old, a boyhood Evertonian, is a free agent having
been released by Manchester United at the end of last season.
It had been claimed the Toffees would be an ideal fit for the
veteran given his perceived desire to stay in the north west.
But when asked by a Twitter user if he was signing for Everton
or whether the stories were not true, he responded by tweeting:
Owen made his name as a precocious teenager with Merseyside
rivals Liverpool before moving to Real Madrid and Newcastle and
then enduring three injury-hit years at Old Trafford.
He has also been of reported interest to Stoke but no agreement
has been reached.
