Evans not distracted by talks
NORTHERN Ireland defender Tom Flanagan insists international team-mate Jonny Evans has been unaffected by recent transfer talk — despite spending the week at Manchester City’s training base.
West Brom captain Evans, 29, has been the subject of interest from C i t y, L e i c e s t e r a n d Arsenal, who all have until 11pm tonight to persuade the Baggies to part with their centre-back.
Though that has remained hanging over his head during the international break, Flanagan has seen no change in Evans this week in the training sessions Northern Ireland have conducted at Manchester City’s training ground.
“Jonny’s not worried about i t ,” F l a n a g a n revealed.
“With us training at Manchester City it might be more nerve-wracking for other people.
“He’s coming off the back of a little injury but he’s looking after himself.
“He’s such a good professional on and off the pitch and I can’t speak highly enough of him.”
