Jonny Evans linked with move back to Manchester United

Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans looks likely to be on the move this summer for only £3 million.

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

The latest club tipped to be interested in a move is Evans' former club Manchester United.

The Sun has claimed that Jose Mourinho sees Evans as a potential summer signing to improve a defence that has already been the second best in the Premier League this season.

Evans played 198 Premier League games during a nine year spell at Old Trafford until he was sold to West Brom for £6 million back in 2015.

Evans is still based in the north west of England and so, recent reports suggested that he favoured a move to Manchester City over a transfer to Arsenal, with both clubs long tipped to be interested in securing his services.
