    Leicester City agree terms with West Brom over Jonny Evans signing


    Joe Jones

    Leicester City have agreed terms with West Bromwich Albion for the transfer of defender Jonny Evans - subject to Premier League approval - on a three-year deal.

    The 30-year-old scored five goals in 96 appearances for the Baggies after joining from Manchester United in 2015.

    Evans, who was West Brom's captain, had a clause in his contract which the Foxes have triggered after the Baggies' relegation to the Championship.

    The Northern Ireland centre-back completed a medical at the King Power Stadium on Thursday and the transfer fee will be paid in two instalments of £1.75m.

    Speaking to LCFC TV, Evans said: “It’s great to join and I’m happy it’s all gone through. When this opportunity came up, it’s one that I couldn’t turn down. It’s an ambitious Club, the owners are ambitious and everyone wants to push the Club forward.

    “I hope that I can give lots to the team and the Club. It’s a great place to play football, the fans really get behind the team and the players are fantastic - these are all factors that made me want to sign for this Football Club.”

    Leicester City manager Claude Puel said: “Jonny is a player of great experience in the Premier League and to have him as part of our squad is fantastic news for the Football Club. He knows exactly what it takes, he is a winner and a leader. He will bring a great deal to our squad and I’m delighted to welcome him to Leicester City.”
