Reguilon is currently out on loan from Tottenham at another London club, Brentford.

He joined the Bees in January and has made two appearances for the club.

The Spaniard started the season on loan at Owen’s old side Manchester United.

He was signed by Erik ten Hag on a temporary deal to provide cover for the injured Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

He made 12 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions before returning to Spurs.

Owen’s son James recently bravely lifted the lid on giving up his dream of being a professional footballer.

He was diagnosed with Stargardt disease when he was just eight years old.

The condition is genetic and has no cure and has left James ‘clinically’ blind.

The Owens are hoping to raise awareness about Stargardt disease in a documentary called Football is For Everyone.

Owen has also revealed that he prays every day for a cure to be found for his son’s blindness.

What is Stargardt disease?

Stargardt disease is a rare, inherited eye condition caused by fatty material building up on the macula — the small part of the retina needed for sharp, central vision.

The gene involved, ABCA4, helps process the breakdown of vitamin A inside the eye. If the gene is faulty, toxic byproducts of vitamin A build up in the light-sensitive cells in the eye, which then corrode and die.

It usually causes vision loss in childhood and adolescence and symptoms can include sensitivity to light, grey, black,or hazy spots in the centre of vision, and colour blindness.

It affects one in 10,000 people and there is no treatment or cure for the disease.
