Former Manchester United and Sunderland defender Wes Brown has joined Championship side Blackburn Rovers until the end of the season. The 36 year old has been training with the Lancashire club since leaving Wearside in the summer. However, a deal with the Championship club was delayed due to a calf strain Brown sustained in pre-season.
Brown, a former England international will also spend time working with David Dunn and Damian Johnson where he will help out with coaching Blackburn's U-23 side. Speaking about Brown's move to the club Rover's manager Owen Coyle speaking to the clubs website said ''He's been outstanding. He's a constant professional - his attitude has been exemplary around the training ground with the young players, helping and encouraging them."
It is not yet clear whether Brown will feature in Blackburn Rovers' game with Derby County on Saturday.
