Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown is training with the Silkmen.
The 37 year old, who also spent five years at the Stadium of Light for Sunderland, is currently looking for a club after spending last season with Blackburn Rovers.
Earlier in the summer it was rumoured that our Cheshire rivals Crewe Alexandra were interested in securing Brown’s services, yet that seems to have been diluted over recent weeks.
The former Premier League and Champions League winner has been seen in photos on the club’s official Facebook page although it is unclear whether his appearance is merely in a bid to keep himself fit, or he is contemplating joining Sir John’s new look Silkmen side.
There is little doubt that despite his age, Brown still has a great football brain, and would certainly be a welcome addition to the squad – should it happen.
