Sunderland chasing Man Utd pair Brown, Gibson

Sunderland are chasing Manchester United pair Wes Brown and Darron Gibson.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland manager Steve Bruce wants to sign Gibson and Brown from his old club Manchester United this summer.

Bruce has identified Gibson as the man to replace Jordan Henderson, who will join Liverpool if they can compromise on a fee with Sunderland.

Gibson, 23, is on the fringes of United's squad but the Irishman has failed to command a regular first-team place and is one of a number of players who will be allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer if the right offer comes in.

United value him at around £6million.

Brown is another after falling behind Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and the Da Silva twins in the pecking order to play in central defence or at right-back.
