Brighton manager Gus Poyet has dismissed speculation suggesting the club are set to sign Manchester United striker Michael Owen.

Reports earlier this week had suggested that Poyet was keen on signing the former England international in a bid to improve the club's chances of securing a play-off place at the end of the season.

But although he admits he would love to have Owen at the club, the Brighton boss insists the reports are incorrect.

"I didn't start the rumour," Poyet told the Evening Argus.

"I started one last week in here about selling Lewis Dunk to Real Madrid for £20million and nobody took it!

"I woke up and everyone was texting me about Michael Owen, even my son who knows everything. I said I don't know anything about it.

"It would be a dream for this football club to have Michael Owen but it's not true.

"I'm not saying he is not available or he doesn't want to come here and drop a few pounds in his salary, but he was not contacted, he was not thought about, he was not on the list.

"But if he wants to come he can give me a call."
