West Brom boss Alan Pardew prepared for possible Jonny Evans departure

West Brom boss Alan Pardew prepared for possible Jonny Evans departure

Pardew admits he can not guarantee fending off interest in the Northern Ireland defender, who was a target for Manchester City and other clubs in the summer.

West Ham would surely be hoping that inflated quotation is a fee which gets reduced if they are to stand a chance of doing a deal.

"Jonny Evans is certainly one of them, and he's our captain". Of course not. Do I fear losing him?

However the player should seriously consider whether joining City will be a good move as there is a chance that he could end up spending more time on the bench than on the field.

Evans has 18 months remaining on his contract at The Hawthorns and, while committed to West Brom, it is hard to see the former Manchester United player signing a new deal with the prospect of European football on offer elsewhere. "Of course I do", Pardew, who was appointed West Bromwich's manager last week, told the press on Thursday.

West Ham manager David Moyes would do well to acquire the experience and organisation that Evans would bring to the Hammers first team.

The need for another central defender was further exacerbated last month when John Stones was ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury suffered during the 2-0 win at Leicester.

Pardew has set his players a target of nine wins in order to retain their top-flight status, and the new boss is keen for three points to be recorded at the Liberty Stadium.

"The earlier you have those talks the better, and we have had those talks this week".
