Latest of Jonny Evans’ future with defender still desperate for Man City

Leicester have opened talks with West Brom stopper Jonny Evans who has given up on a dream switch to Manchester City.

Albion’s Northern Ireland international and club captain is poised to leave the Premier League basement club on a bargain £3million release clause.

Ex-Manchester United trainee Evans, who lives in the North West, had been hoping for a move to champions City.

Pep Guardiola previously tried to sign Evans last summer but City failed to agree a fee.

Now Evans has been told City will not be returning for him and he is speaking to the Foxes about a switch instead.

Evans didn’t start any of Albion’s final six games under Darren Moore and declared himself unfit for the club’s final game at Crystal Palace after relegation was confirmed.

He had previously one of four senior stars to break a curfew in February in Spain when they borrowed a taxi in a prank.

But Evans remains highly-rated by Northern Ireland where boss Michael O’Neill has described him as a ‘top six player’.

Leicester have already signed Porto defender Ricardo Pereira and have an interest in Norwich’s James Maddison and Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish

Where will Jonny Evans be playing next season?
