A new year brings a new football columnist to the BBC Sport website.

I did drop a hint about this back in August that I was hoping to add a further football columnist so you can see that it's taken months to get to the point of being able to announce who we signed up.

The transfer window is open after all - so it's great timing.

Our new signing has a unique biography in terms of his upbringing and who he plays for and I'm expecting him to give us his views on a wide range of topics - from playing for England to living and working in Munich...

You may have realised by now that England and Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves is our January signing.

Owen's column will be weekly and will normally appear on the BBC Sport football website on a Tuesday.

As with our Kevin Nolan column, we will give you the opportunity to quiz Owen yourself by emailing in questions. We will select the most interesting ones each week and Owen will be happy to answer them.

Owen is currently recovering from a broken leg and hopes to be fully fit in a few weeks' time.

I'll leave it to him to tell you all about himself and his views on football once his column gets under way, but suffice to say, his family and playing backgrounds are fascinating.

So, on Tuesday look out for Owen's first column from Bayern Munich's winter training camp in Dubai - and remember to get those questions in.
