One little snippet posted in one of the red-top gossip columns capitalizes on the fact that Sunderland are a striker light after losing Darren Bent to Aston Villa.

The rumour infers that Steve Bruce is interested in exploring the possibility of taking Michael Owen to the Stadium of Light whilst also pointing out that Sir Alex Ferguson might want to secure a replacement for Owen first, if the deal is to go ahead.

With Owen now fit but rarely getting a start for United, it may well be a feasible option and would increase the United connection on Wearside with one of our youngsters, Danny Welbeck already on their books for the season and receiving rave reviews.

We`ll keep you posted!
