Artell: "Wes Is One We Have Mentioned"

14 June 2017

Crewe boss is not totally ruling out a move for the former Manchester United defender Wes Brown.

David Artell has revealed that the former Manchester United and England defender Wes Brown has been discussed as a possible summer target.

Brown, who has won five Premier League titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League in 1999 and 2008 is a free agent after being released by Blackburn Rovers at the end of the summer.

Although the former Sunderland man is approaching the twilight of his career, Artell has not totally ruled out the 37-year-old.

Artell said: “Wes was one we spoke about. He was mentioned amongst others. When you have won Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues, why would you not talk about him and consider him being right for us?

“He is 37 now but he would tick a lot of boxes. It is one we would have to wait and see about. He isn’t our priority because we are considering other positions but when we talk about centre-halves again then I am sure his name will crop up again.

“League Two is different to the Championship and we know he is 37 now but his attributes and character may outweigh that. He is on the list and I will only make a decision that is the best interest of the club.

“No-one ruled out Ryan Lowe last season, so Wes is an option.”
