Owen to leave Manchester United
Owen will be fondly remembered by United fans for his injury time winner in the 4-3 derby win over Manchester City in his first season.
'The manager informed me after our testimonial match on Tuesday that the club would not be offering me a new contract,' Owen revealed on his Twitter account.
'I have loved every minute of the 3 years I have spent at such a fantastic club. I would like to thank the players, staff and fans for their support and wish them well for the future. I now plan to have a short holiday during which I will contemplate my next move.'
