Michael Owen admits he is looking forward to working under Tony Pulis at Stoke City.

The 32-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the Potters after the England international was released by Manchester United back in May.

Owen’s move to the Britannia Stadium remains subject to confirmation that the Potters submitted the relevant paperwork prior to Tuesday’s 1600BST deadline for the player to be signed on a free agent basis.

Owen, who scored 158 goals in 297 appearances for Liverpool over eight seasons at Anfield, is relishing the chance to make an impact at the Potters.

“Delighted to have signed for Stoke subject to Premier League approval,” Owen wrote on Twitter.

“We have been in talks for a while and it was a club I was always keen to join.

“I’m particularly excited at the prospect of working under Tony Pulis. He has assembled a great squad that I look forward to joining.

“I’m now looking forward to contributing as much as possible to the club and can’t wait to play in front of a great set of supporters.

“Thanks for your kind messages everyone. Can’t wait to get going again!”

Owen scored 17 goals in 52 appearances after joining the Red Devils on a free transfer in 2009.
