Crewe abandon interest in Wes Brown

Wes Brown made five league appearances for Blackburn Rovers last season

Crewe Alexandra have ended their interest in former Manchester United defender Wes Brown after he failed to show up for an expected meeting.

The Alex had hoped to sign the former England international, 37, when he was released by Blackburn following their relegation from the Championship.

“Wes was an interesting one,” assistant manager Kenny Lunt told BBC Stoke.
