Everton have emerged as the favourites to sign Manchester United stalwart Wes Brown this summer.
Bolton and Aston Villa have also been linked with moves for the 32-year-old but, according to MEN, Goodison Park is now the most likely destination for the United veteran.
Brown has made 361 appearances for United in an Old Trafford career spanning 15 years, but the versatile defender has seen his contribution restricted in more recent seasons.
The former England international was required just 15 times by Sir Alex Ferguson during the title winning campaign, with his last appearance coming in March.
Everton will now allegedly approach United over the potential signing of Brown, while the player himself is said to be open to a move in order to revitalise his career.
Toffees skipper Phil Neville did just that when he left Old Trafford in 2005, and David Moyes will be hopeful Brown can have a similar impact at Everton.
Another United defender who has been tipped to make a transfer window move to Merseyside is John O'Shea who, according to the Irish Times, is a target for Liverpool.
The Anfield club are known to be in the market for reinforcements in both central defence at at full-back and the versatile Irishman would bring a vast amount of experience to Liverpool.
