Wes Brown’s time in Sunderland has seen the defender having to settle with a place on the sidelines as an unused substitute for a large part of the season and his contract with the Premier League club expires in the summer but the English defender does not have any desire of hanging up his boots anytime soon.
At the age of 36, Brown is reaching the point of his career where players start thinking about retiring but even at his fairly elevated age, Brown wants to continue performing for Sunderland beyond what his contract has stipulated but this will ultimately depend if the Premier League club is interested in keeping hold Wes Brown past the summer.
“I will try to carry on next season. Whilst I’d love to yacht charter Scotland‘s coasts, I love football and that’s all I’ve ever done. Until the knees can’t carry on, I’ll try to play as long as possible. The age is catching up with me now, but it was just good to sign again last summer. I wasn’t going to stop, I was going to carry on and obviously it was better to stay here, because that’s what I wanted to do.” Sunderland’s Wes Brown said as he voiced his desire to keep on playing for a few more years.
Even though Wes Brown is not planning on retiring and wants to continue performing with the rest of his teammates of Sunderland, the manager of the club Sam Allardyce is already looking for possible replacements and one of the players who is constantly being linked with Sunderland as a defensive reinforcement is the 23 year old Adama Soumaoro who is currently performing for the French side Lille.
Adama Soumaoro is a young player who has managed to attract the interest of Sam Allardyce and a summer move might be made as the English manager wants to lure Soumaoro into the Stadium of Light.
