Spurs seem to be linked with a few ‘utility’ players at the moment and the latest of these is Wes Brown. Being a utility player can often mean that the respective managers haven’t quite figured out where to play them, but with Brown being able to slot in at centre half or right back this may be one of the more sensible transfers for Spurs to seek out.
With news of Ledley King’s latest injury setback and Vedran Corluka still being linked with a move away from the Lane, Brown could provide cover for both, but you really have to question whether he is better than Corluka in either position.
Brown is now 31 and his international career seems to be behind him which takes away the chance of him being injured while playing for England in the same way that Dawson and Defoe were. With all that considered, this may be one of the more likely calls this month.
