Japanese side JEF United Chiba have refused to rule out the possibility of making a shock move for England and Newcastle striker Michael Owen, but stressed no transfer targets have yet been set by new manager Alex Miller.

The struggling J-League side were said to be considering an approach for the 28-year-old striker, according to a report in Japanese daily Nikkan Sports.

JEF United have admitted Owen would be a great signing but stressed no approach has been made as spokesman Kentaro Shiga told PA Sport: "We are considering adding players to our squad when the transfer windows open this summer. However, we haven´t come to the point where we can name the possible candidates, including Owen."
