Manchester United are ready to offload Jonny Evans to West Bromwich Albion for about £8million ahead of transfer deadline day, according to reports from the Express.
The 27-year-old looks to have lost his regular role in the club’s back line after a number of unconvincing displays last season.
Despite a lack of options in centre-back, manager Louis van Gaal has overlooked Evans and is instead playing versatile midfielder Daley Blind in the position.
West Brom were close on signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Federico Fazio, but talks have been halted after a disagreement on his preferred wages.
Fazio was set for a medical to complete his switch to the Hawthorns, but manager Tony Pulis is now keen on reinforcing his backline with the United defender after the move broke down.
The Red Devils were looking to offload the Northern Ireland international for about £12million, but could considering a cut-price deal of £8million in order to push his exit.
