He may earn a seven-figure salary with Premier League side Sunderland, but Wes Brown isn't afraid of looking after the pennies.

The former Manchester United defender enjoyed a free trip to Legoland this week after his wife collected tokens found on boxes of Kellogg's cereal.

Leanne, 36, was delighted with the buy one, get one free offer, which saved the couple £138.

"We made sure we stopped off at tesco and bought 3 boxes of cereal to get the buy one get one free offer at legoland saving £138!" she said on Twitter.

However, far from enjoying her day out, Leanne was not impressed with her trip to Windsor, complaining about the queues and the price.

"Wow biggest que [sic] in the world at LegoLand! hope it's worth it," she said, before later saying: "value for money it is not!"

Brown and Sunderland start their Premier League campaign next Saturday with a trip to West Brom.
