Perth Glory coach Ian Ferguson says former England international Michael Owen will not be joining the club.

A representative of Owen-s contacted Perth Glory but the initial discussion did not progress to anything further.

“Michael is a player who comes with a high pedigree but it-s not the direction I want to take the club,” Ferguson said.

“I am looking for a younger player and a player who has been playing more regularly.

“I have three or four irons in the fire that I am pursuing, which is good.

“In terms of Michael, there was contact from an agent if we were interested, it was discussed at a good level, but I have made the decision he is the not the player needed at Perth Glory.”
