Everton lead chase to land Man United defender

Wes Brown is being lined up for a £3million move to Everton.
The 31-year-old Manchester United defender is also wanted by Sunderland, Bolton and Blackburn after being told by Sir Alex Ferguson that his time at Old Trafford is up following the emergence of Chris Smalling and arrival of £16.5m Phil Jones.
But Brown, who came through the ranks at United after joining his hometown club as a schoolboy in 1996, prefers a switch to Goodison Park to link-up once again with Phil Neville.
And Everton boss David Moyes hopes to be given the cash to land him.
