West Bromwich Albion have offered a pay-as-you-play contract to former Manchester United and Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves.

The Baggies will meet with his representatives in the next few days to thrash out details of the deal.

The major problem is Hargreaves’ medical record with persistent knee troubles restricting him to only 27 games in four years.

The 30-year-old was released by United last month and West Brom sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth is keen to sign the free agent.

“We have been in talks with Owen,” he told the club’s website.

“He’s based over in the United States at the moment so we might try to get to meet him in the next week or so and see if he would consider coming to us.

“If Owen is fit to play Premier League football, it is a no-brainer. Make no mistake, Owen Hargreaves is a fantastic player.

“He’s shown he’s a top, top player from his England, Manchester United and Bayern Munich days.

“Obviously, Owen has had a few medical issues over the last few years. But we would be absolutely delighted to get a fit Owen Hargreaves.

“That would be a wonderful signing for us.”
