West Brom to offer former Manchester United star Owen Hargreaves Premier League lifeline

Baggies boss Roy Hodgson is considering offering the injury-stricken midfielder a pay-as-you-play deal at The Hawthorns after his contract at Old Trafford expired
Owen Hargreaves, who was released by Manchester United when his contract expired last month, could be offered a route back into the Premier League with West Brom, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 30-year-old endured an injury-hit four years at Old Trafford, making just 39 appearances in his time at the club, but Roy Hodgson is said to be considering offering him a pay-as-you-play deal at The Hawthorns

Albion flew out to California on Sunday for their pre-season training camp, and Hodgson is believed to be open to the idea of meeting Hargreaves in America.

Leicester manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has also declared his interest in the former Bayern Munich man; the two having previously worked together at international level with England.

Just last week Hargreaves posted videos of himself training on YouTube, in an attempt to prove his fitness and earn a contract before the start of the upcoming season.

Hodgson is also said to be weighing up a deal to bring former Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate to The Hawthorns following his White Hart Lane exit earlier this summer.

Woodgate is another player who has endured an injury-plagued career, so any deal offered is also reported to be on a pay-as-you-play basis
