Itâ€™s looking more and more likely that Wes Brown could move to Newcastle United in the January transfer window.
Wes Brown – positive on a move to Newcastle United
While Chris Mort has said that he doesnâ€™t think signing one or two defenders would improve things much, we believe Sam (and Chris) would jump at the idea of bringing someone in with Premiership experience.Â As we know Sam was after both Brown and Silvestre in the summer, but Alex Ferguson did not want to lose either player.
That could still be true, but Brown has refused to sign a new 4 year contract offered to him, and his current contract is up in June. So Ferguson may want to get at least a small fee for him in January.
The good news this morning is the Newcastle Journal is reporting that during the summer Brownâ€™s agents gave Newcastle encouraging signs, and even suggested Brown was interested in moving to Newcastle, to join former team mates Nicky Butt and Alan Smith.
During the England get togethers in the summer Michael Owen and Kieron Dyer both discussed a possible move with Wes, and also received encouraging signs.Â So itâ€™s looking somewhat likely that Wes Brown could turn up at Newcastle in January, and we think that would be a solid signing by Big Sam. Wes can play anywhere across the back four and is an experienced and accomplished defender.
He could very much help to strengthen our defense. It’s only 18 days until the window opens and any moves for players we expect to happen early rather than late, so we don’t have long to wait.
What do you think?Â Would Wes Brown be a good buy for Newcastle?
Let us know – comments always welcome.
