West Brom have tonight completed the signing of former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans.

The 27 year old joined us for an undisclosed fee and has put pen to paper on a four year deal at The Hawthorns having successfully passed a medical at the training ground last night.

The Northern Ireland international leaves Manchester United having made a total of 198 appearances for them, and speaking to wba.co.uk, head coach Tony Pulis said of his capture.

‘This is a great signing for the club. 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.’

Evans comes in knowing a lot of the players already, there’s Darren Fletcher from United (his neighbour) and he also knows James Chester and Ben Foster from Old Trafford time as well. Then there’s Chris Brunt and Gareth McAuley from Northern Ireland duty, so it shouldn’t take him too long to settle in properly hopefully.

Speaking himself after making the move, Evans said the aim was to kick on up the table now.

‘I hope to push the Albion up the League. It’s a new, fresh challenge for me. One I’m looking forward to. I know a few of the lads already and I spoke to a couple, who highly recommended the club.’

Of course with it being said that subject to Evans coming in, Joleon Lescott would be going out, we’ll have to see what happens on that front now.
