Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has officially joined Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters for the 2017-18 season.
Having only made 5 appearances for English outfit Blackburn Rovers last season, the decorated centre-back, 37, has now moved to India in pursuit of a new challenge, as he joins Kerala Blasters and reunites with ex-Manchester United assistant coach and newly appointed Keralan boss Rene Meulensteen in the process.
The South Indian ISL franchise confirmed the transfer on its official twitter account, by putting up the following post:

Meanwhile, Meulensteen is also believed to be in the pursuit of another former Red Devil, in the form of Bulgarian star striker Dimitar Berbatov, so as to bolster his Kerala Blasters squad and mount a genuine challenge for the ISL title.
