Jonny Evans rejoins Manchester United
Man Utd have decided to re-sign Jonny Evans, with the central defender signing a 12 month contract at Old Trafford with the option of a further year. The player, who won three Premier League titles with the Reds, had been without a club and had been linked with a transfer to several teams, but opted to return to his former club.
Jonny Evans said to the club's official website: “I am delighted to join Manchester United, a place which has always felt like home. This club and the fans have shaped me as a player and as a person since I was 15 years-old, and I am delighted to be back where it all began as part of this talented squad.
“I’ve really enjoyed working under the manager and his coaching staff since the start of pre-season, and I’m looking forward to helping this group achieve success together at this fantastic football club.”
Jonny Evans arrives on a free transfer, and will provide backup for manager Erik Ten Hag, particularly if Harry Maguire leaves on transfer deadline day as has been suggested in the last hour or so.
