Jonny Evans odds-on for Manchester City move

Northern Ireland defender in demand

West Brom‘s Jonny Evans is now just 2/5 to join Manchester City, according to Coral.

The Citizens were 2/1 to be Evans’ next club but a flurry of bets now mean he is odds-on for a move to the Etihad Stadium.

Local rivals Manchester United have also been looking at their former player but they’re now 5/1 to sign the centre back, with Everton also at 5/1 and Arsenal at 6/1.

Evans has just 18 months left to run on his deal at the Hawthorns and the 29-year-old seems unlikely to sign an extension.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Jonny Evans seems sure to be on the move soon and we’ve seen a lot of support over the last few days on him making Manchester City his next club.”

Pep Guardiola’s side are now 4/1 to go unbeaten for the rest of the Premier League season after recording yet another win against Newcastle this week.

City travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday and are 1/4 to see off 2017 with another three points.
