Ex-Manchester United and England defender Wes Brown has reportedly been declared bankrupt.

The central defender ended his career playing for Indian club Kerala Blasters.

Brown also made 23 appearances for England, scoring once.

In total, Brown got his hands on five Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, two FA Cups, two League Cups and two FA Community Shields.

Now, according to the Daily Mirror, the former football has now been declared bankrupt at the High Court.

It has been reported that on 27 February, HMRC filed a bankruptcy petition against the former United player and it was rubber stamped at the High Court on 12 April, with the order later being published in The Gazette.

During his time at the Old Trafford club, it is believed that he earned a weekly wage of £50,000.

Brown was born in Longsight, Manchester and was signed by United when he was a schoolboy.

At the age of just 19, Brown made his debut for the club in 1998 and went on to make over 200 appearances for United.
