Last updated : 24 January 2012 By DSG

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.
