Jonny Evans: Three Premier League clubs prepare summer raid for cut-price West Brom defender, according to latest rumours

Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans could be on the move this summer for a meagre £3 million.

The 30-year-old had been tipped for a move to Arsenal or Manchester City for over £20 million last summer but now, if West Brom are relegated from the Premier League, a clause in the player's contract could see him leave for a fraction of that price.

West Brom are rooted to the bottom of the table and seven points from safety with 10 games left.

Should they suffer the drop, three clubs are lining up to take Evans off their hands.

The latest to be linked with the player are West Ham. The Mirror report that David Moyes is keen to bring Evans to London, while Leicester City and Everton are also said to be interested in the centre-half.

Leicester bid for the player last summer while Everton boss Sam Allardyce will move for Evans if he keeps the manager's job, say the Mirror.

Evans moved to West Brom in 2015 after leaving Manchester United. He was made club captain after Darren Fletcher's departure last summer.
