Stoke City reportedly remain the favourites to sign free agent Michael Owen but a deal is unlikely to happen before tonight's transfer deadline.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen is reportedly unlikely to sign for Stoke City before the close of today's transfer window.

The ex-England international, who was released by United at the end of the season, has been widely linked with a switch to the Britannia Stadium after reiterating that he wants to remain in the Premier League.

While the Potters continue to be the frontrunners to nab the free agent, it appears that a deal is unlikely to be completed before tonight's 11pm deadline, according to BBC Sport.

Despite the possibility of Owen missing the deadline, the 32-year-old will still be permitted to join a new club since he is available on a free move.
