Brighton have launched an ambitious bid for Manchester United forward Michael Owen.
Owen, 32, has seen his chances at Old Trafford limited since signing on a free transfer from Newcastle in 2009.
He has only started 18 times for United, coming off the bench a further 34 times, with 17 goals.
Gus Poyet is now ready to offer the former England striker regular football, as they go in search of a play-off place.
According to a report in The Sun, Owen could move to the Championship club for a nominal fee.
