Owen Hargreaves is considering whether to call time on his career.

Hargreaves caused a minor sensation last summer when he signed a one-year contract with Manchester City following his release by Manchester United. Plagued by injury for the previous three seasons, it appeared Hargreaves had won his fitness battle when he made a goalscoring Blues debut against Birmingham in the Carling Cup in September.

However, the 31-year-old made just three more appearances for City and after being released by the club, Hargreaves admitted retirement was one of the options he is thinking about. He said: "I don't want to chase something. If I get the right fit I will go for it. But I am not forced to do anything and if I can't get back to the level I used to, I don't want to play."
