Evans not dis­tracted by talks

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

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.”
