Man Utd won't sell Brown

Manchester United won't consider selling defender Wes Brown this month.

The Times says Brown has reached an impasse with the club, who have refused his demands for a contract extension worth £55,000 a week, but, despite firm interest from Everton, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager, will not sell.

"We did turn down an offer from Newcastle a couple of weeks ago," David Gill, the United chief executive, said. "But it's unlikely that a team would come in and offer something substantial for him when he is out of contract in the summer."
