Wes Brown is set to sign a short term deal with Blackburn Rovers having ended his five year association with Sunderland in the Summer.
The former Manchester United defender was left out of contract over the Summer and was offered a chance to train with Rovers by new manager Owen Coyle during pre-season.
The 36-year-old impressed enough to convince Coyle to offer the England international a contract, telling The Mirror "I've spoken to Wes over the last number of weeks. It was important that we got him up to speed in terms of fitness and he has now come through that process, so that (giving him a contract) is something we would look to do."

Brown made his debut for United in 1998, making 362 appearances in total for the club in an Old Trafford career that delivered seven Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, two FA Cups and four League Cups. His time at Sunderland was far less successful, however, with Brown managing to make only 87 appearances for the Black Cats in five seasons.
