Wigan Athletic - Michael Brown set to leave

Latics midfield dynamo Michael Brown is being linked with a move away from the JJB with his old club Sheffield United strongly tipped for a £2 million bid

Late last week Brownie was the subject of speculation linking him with a move to newly promoted Premier League club Stoke City and their manager Tony Pullis was said to have lodged a bid with the Latics

Crystal Palace, who are managed by Browns old Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock entered the fray over the weekend and now the Blades themselves are being reported to have made a bid for the combative midfield player.

Browns never say die attitude and heart on the sleeve displays endear him to supporters and the little terrier certainly put in some sterling displays for the Latics last season.

Since joining from Fulham for £2.5 million last August, Brownie made the central midfield role his own, firstly partnering Denny Landzaat then Wilson Palacios in the Latics engine room

Word coming from the JJB is that Latics boss Steve Bruce has told Brown that he doesn`t figure in his plans for the coming season and that he will be allowed to leave once Lee Cattermole is signed from Middlesbrough.

I for one will be sorry to see the former Spurs and Manchester City player leave, Brownie might not have been the most gifted but you got 100% every game from him.

So it looks like he has a choice, stay in the Premier League with Stoke City or drop a division and go to either a former club in Sheffield United or former manager in Neil Warnock at Palace.

Whatever he decides Michael Brown will leave with the best wishes of all at Vital Wigan

I think he is on his way which is a shame as he gave 100% last season

I think Brown would make excellent back-up, and would be sure of a good many games in the usual injury affected season.
