Wes Brown holds the key to solving an £8million transfer wrangle.

Manchester United have made it clear they will not increase the £50,000- a-week currently offered to the England defender.

Brown (left) says that is unacceptable and that he will move in the summer as a free agent. But United would prefer to sell in January for about £2m - if they can persuade Rangers to sell right-back Alan Hutton for £6m.

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that the club have turned down an offer from Newcastle United for defender Wes Brown.

The 28-year-old, whose current contract runs until the summer, is free to speak to other clubs having refused to sign a new deal with the Reds.

Contract negotiations have been ongoing between Brown and United for most of the season. The Reds made their final offer just before Christmas, but the England international is yet to put pen to paper.

And Sir Alex insists the matter is now completely in Brown's hands.

"There was an enquiry from Newcastle about Wes and we turned it down," confirmed the United boss on Friday.

"The matter rests with Wes and his agent. We'll just wait and see what happens. Our offer is still there - it's now up to Wes."


Not sure how I feel about this.

Fergie seems to still think Brown might sign a new contract but can we really risk him leaving for nothing in the summer?

If he is sold in Jan then I think we'll need to buy cover because with Silvestre out until late March and Gary Neville still not back in action we could be caught short at the back.

We now know Hutton is available for £9mill, so if Newcastle can up their offer to say £4mill then Hutton will technically cost £5mill which is the reported mark we are supposedly prepared to pay for him, if Newcastle up their offer this maybe on the cards. The one thing making this unlikely is that Hutton will be inelligable for the Champions League

Sam Allardyce admits he could make another attempt to bring Manchester United defender Wes Brown to Newcastle United.

Earlier on Friday, Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed he had rejected an offer from Newcastle for Brown.

The England international is out of contract at the end of the season and has turned down the champions' final offer of an extension.

Magpies boss Allardyce is planning talks with chairman Chris Mort regarding another bid and believes Brown could help to solve his side's defensive frailties.

Hugely experienced

"I will have to speak to the chairman over that," said Allardyce on Sky Sports News.

"From my point of view, I would like Wes Brown very, very much. A hugely experienced defender coming in would be fantastic.

"From our point of view, we have had a problem of not keeping enough clean sheets and this effectively means we have to score at least two goals to win a football match.

"If we can resurrect that side of our defensive problems with Wes, that would be fantastic. I would have to speak to Chris on that to see whether we can move it forward or whether we can't."

But Allardyce did play down a link to Chelsea defender Tal Ben Haim, who he worked with during his time as Bolton Wanderers manager.

Reports claimed Newcastle were lining up a loan bid for the Israel international, but Allardyce is not planning a move for the centre-half.

He added: "I don't think so at the moment, that's not one we've certainly pursued anyway."

Brown for £2 mil is a BARGAIN for anyone!
typical utd we pay over the odds and let good players go cheap....i know we don't have much choice with brown but players in the past we have let go far too cheaply and brought in others way over the odds



this whole saga is not like united at all we normally have players locked up in contracts for years and offer new ones when they have at least 2 years to run ...maybe wes was taken for granted?
