Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce seems today to have given up hope of landing Manchester United ace Wes Brown on loan next month.
Wes Brown - will become a free agent in the summer
We wouldnâ€™t be surprised if Sam has already talked to Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson about the England international after Wes turned down the chance to sign a new four year contract.
Sam thinks with worries over Gary Neville’s long-term fitness, Alex Ferguson will not be prepared to let Brown leave in January. Though that will mean that Brown will be available on a free transfer in the summer, and hopefully Newcastle can do the deal with Manchester United now for the deal to be executed in June.
The former Bolton manager is still hoping to strengthen the Newcastle defence, although they did keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Fulham, but the defense still looked far too hesitant and unsure.
Sam told the People today:
“Wes Brown is not going to be available in January,” he told The People. “He may leave at the end of the season.”
“The speculation comes round because he supposedly turned a contract down, but I can’t see Sir Alex letting him leave with Gary Neville being injured.”
What do you think about this situation?Â We think we should get him in the summer for free.
