Leicester City FC transfer news: Jonny Evans passed medical and agrees deal ahead of Foxes move

Evans was relegated from the Premier League with West Brom last term

Thursday, June 7, 2018

Jonny Evans has passed his medical at Leicester City and has agreed terms on a three-year deal with the club, according to reports.

The 2015/16 Premier League winners triggered the defender’s £3.5million release clause after West Brom were relegated from the top flight last month.

The Foxes have captured Evans, 30, for £17.5million less than what West Brom turned down for their captain.

The Northern Ireland international nearly left the Baggies during the past two transfer windows but the club rejected a £21million bid from Leicester as well as an £18million offer from Manchester City.

Leicester will pay Albion in two instalments of £1.75m as they look to improve on this season’s ninth-place finish.

Evans is the Foxes’ second high-profile signing of the summer after they completed the capture of right-back Ricardo Pereira for £22m from Porto last month.

Leicester are also in contention for wantaway Stoke player Xherdan Shaqiri but Liverpool look favourites to land the Swiss player.
