The news doesnâ€™t seem to go away and we believe itâ€™s true that both Newcastle United and Sunderland will battle it out in January for the signature of Manchester United defender Wes Brown.
Wes Brown – Manchester United Defender looking for pastures anew?
The Daily Mirror is again reporting that the England defender, who has already refused to sign a new four-year contract at Old Trafford, isÂ seriously considering moving on from Manchester United.
Having Nicky Butt at Newcastle may help sway Wes that joining the Magpies would be a good move for him, and the friendship between Manchester manager Alex Ferguson and Big Sam should also help.
But of course Alex is also close to Sunderland manager Roy Keane and Sunderland must also be in with a good chance of capturing the defender.
Newcastle Chairman Chris Mort over the weekend said he didnâ€™t think bringing in a couple of defenders in the January transfer window would help much, but if they have Premiership experience they have got to be useful to Newcastle. We think Wes Brown and Tal Ben Haim from Chelsea would be two signings that would help stabilize Newcastle’s defense and would be excellent acquisitions in January.
Both players can play anywhere along the back line and would beÂ starters in the side.
What do you think?Â Would these players improve our defense?Â Â Let us know – comments very welcome.
