Approved Owen in Stoke 25-man squad

Michael Owen has been granted permission by the Premier League to play for Stoke City this season.

Owen`s availability was put in doubt after there was confusion whether Stoke had managed to complete the deal for the former England international before the 25-man squad deadline.

The Premier League approved Stoke squad and allowed the 32-year-old to be a part of it.

Owen has been handed the number 10 shirt which was vacated by Ricardo Fuller over the summer.

Goalkeeper: 1. Asmir Begovic, 27. Carlo Nash, 29. Thomas Sorensen,

Forwards: 9. Kenwyne Jones, 10. Michael Owen, 19. Jonathan Walters, 25. Peter Crouch, 33. Cameron Jerome
