STOKE CITY have today won the race to sign England international striker Michael Owen on a free transfer, subject to Premier League Board approval.


The former Liverpool and Real Madrid hit-man has penned a one-year deal at the Britannia Stadium, following his release from Manchester United at the end of the 2011/12 campaign.


Owen has enjoyed a glittering playing career both home and abroad, scoring 221 goals in 473 appearances.


The Chester born front-man becomes City's seventh signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Jamie Ness, Geoff Cameron, Michael Kightly, Maurice Edu, Charlie Adam and Steven N'Zonzi.


One of England's most decorated players, Owen boasts an impeccable scoring record at international level, wracking up 40 goals from his 89 caps, including a memorable hat-trick against Germany in a 5-1 victory just over a decade ago.


He arrives in the Potteries on the back of a three-year stay at Old Trafford, whereby despite his well-documented injury problems, he still managed to score 17 goals in 52 appearances - including three in four games last season.
