Defender to reject Manchester City move?

West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans has stated he is committed to the club, despite interest from Manchester City. 

City have already had an £18m bid rejected for the Northern Irish international, and are reportedly preparing a £30m improved offer.

However, speaking to the clubs matchday programme ahead of todays game against Stoke City, Evans has insisted he is committed to the club.

“Obviously there’s been a bit of speculation around my future here,

“But from my point of view, it’s very simple.

“All I’ve been concentrating on is getting fit and getting back out on the pitch and doing my bit for the team.”

“Every window there’s always speculation over transfers but as players these things are often out of your control and it’s best not to think too much about it.

“Until anybody tells me different, I’m committed to the Albion and I’m only thinking about getting in this team.

“It’s a great club and I’m proud to be captain.

“For me, all I’m thinking about is getting fit for today and helping us get a good result.

“Hopefully now I should be ready to play this afternoon which would be great because I much prefer to be out there playing than watching!”

West Brom play Stoke at 13:30 BST in a game live on Sky Sports Main Event.
