Crewe interested in signing ex-Man United defender Wes Brown
Crewe Alexandra are considering a move to try to sign former Manchester United and England defender Wes Brown.
Brown, 37, is a free agent after leaving Blackburn following their relegation to League One, although Crewe boss David Artell says he other priorities in the transfer market.
"It's not something that's pressing, immediate or close," Artell told BBC Radio Stoke. "It's something we may visit depending what happens in the next few weeks.
"Should he be on our list? Give me a good reason why he wouldn't be. Is he right for us at 37? That would be the big question mark, I suppose. But he certainly ticks all the other boxes.
"We've got other priorities at the moment in other positions, but when we get around to looking at centre-halves, we'll consider Wes along with the others."
Brown won the Premier League five times and the Champions League twice during his time at Old Trafford.
Crewe ended the 2016-17 campaign 17th in League Two.
