Leicester City sign Jonny Evans from West Brom

Leicester City have completed the £3.5m signing of defender Jonny Evans on a three-year deal from West Brom.

Evans, 30, scored five goals in 96 appearances for the Baggies after joining from Manchester United in 2015.

The Northern Ireland centre-back completed a medical at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.

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 transfer fee will be paid in two instalments of £1.75m.

Evans came close to leaving The Hawthorns during the past two transfer windows.

Leicester had a bid of £25m rejected last summer, with West Brom also turning down advances from Manchester City and Arsenal.
