Reports in Manchester are suggesting out-of-favour defender Wes Brown is being chased by a number of Premier League sides.

The 31-year-old, who can play at right back or centre half, is reportedly being chased by Newcastle United, Tottenham, Everton, Blackburn, Everton, Sunderland and Birmingham City.

Brown has spent his entire career with the Red Devils after joining the club's youth academy in 1996. He has made 355 appearances, scoring 4 goals.

However, the 23-time capped former England defender has struggled to break into the side this season, starting only five matches, two of those being Carling Cup games.

The experienced defender has fallen behind the young trio of Rafeal, Chris Smalling and Johnny Evans since breaking his foot in March.

It is unclear if Sir Alex will allow the long-serving Brown move on loan or a permanent deal. But his days at Old Trafford seem to be numbered, as there appears to be no shortage of interest in the defender.

Reports this week have suggest Sir Alex is preparing a cull of his squad within the next six months with seven players expected to leave.

Veteren pair Edwin Van Der Sar (40) and Gary Neville (35) will be released along with injury plagued duo Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen.

Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak will also be allowed to move after the arrival of Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard.
