Perth Glory open talks with Stoke striker Owen January 6, 2013, 12:05 pm

Australian club Perth Glory are in talks with Stoke City striker Michael Owen.

The Daily Mail says Glory are in talks with the management of high-profile striker Owen about bringing the former England player to Australia.

Owen, 33, made a name for himself at some of the world's biggest clubs, spending nearly a decade at Liverpool before having stints at Real Madrid and Manchester United.

He is currently on the books at Stoke City, but has made just four appearances as a substitute for the English Premier League club this season.

Former Chelsea striker Billy Mehmet, frustrated by a lack of opportunity in Perth, will link up with Thai Premier League club Bangkok Glass FC next week after Glory agreed to release him today.

    Remember Robbie Fowler ? Supporters want to see their team win. You achieved more by getting in the A-Leagues best scorer Kiwi Shane Smeltz. Look at bottom of the league Sydney with their high paid Italian - great move that was. Spending money getting the best players from within the League would be better than wasting a bundle on another has been. They come here for a holiday is all :( I love these guys and admire what they have achieved in becoming great but would spend my money more wisely.
