Manchester United striker Michael Owen will not be moving to Derby next season, according to Rams manager Nigel Clough.

"The rumour has come from the internet, I understand, and that is where it belongs," Clough told the Derby Telegraph.

"Silly names are going to be bandied around but we have identified our targets.


"We can expect this type of thing over the coming weeks but some of the rumours are going to be more ridiculous than others and certainly the Michael Owen rumour fits into that category.

"It is unfortunate Kenny Dalglish has just gone back into management because we could have gone for him as well," the Derby manager joked.

Derby had been linked with the Manchester United star after Clough admitted he would be buying new players in the summer, but Clough insists Owen is not on his transfer wishlist.

Owen’s contract with Manchester United runs out at the end of this season, and while the 31-year-old has expressed a desire to stay at Old Trafford, his age and limited appearances this season would point to him being released by Manchester United in the summer.
