West Brom paid £6 million for Jonny Evans today
The Northern Irishman signs a four-year deal.

WEST BROM HAVE completed the signing of Manchester United’s Northern Irish defender Jonny Evans.

The 27-year-old underwent a medical at Albion’s training ground last night and put pen to paper on a four-year-deal today, reported to be in the region of £6m.

Evans enjoyed a trophy-laden nine-year spell with United, winning six major honours – three Premier League titles, two League Cups and the Club World Cup. Having come through the ranks at the club, he went on to make 196 appearances, scoring seven goals.

Prior to his move, he was Manchester United’s second longest-serving player behind Wayne Rooney, having made his debut in September 2007. The club were quick to tweet their best wishes to Evans on the move.

Evans will now link up with former United team-mate Darren Fletcher, who left Old Trafford in January and has since been appointed West Brom’s captain. Tony Pulis believes Evans can be a big player for the Baggies.

“This is a great signing for the club,” he said. “Jonny brings a lot of experience and will be a big player for us – he’s a player I’ve been watching for some time.

“We are delighted to have him on board.”
