According to the Telegraph, Jonny Evans is set to leave Manchester United, having made his debut for the club in the 2007/8 season. He is likely to join former team-mates Darron Gibson and Tom Cleverley at Everton.

The fee is for a reported £8 million, which goes some way to offsetting the transfer outlay for Manchester United who have made four signings already this season, and are rumoured to be after more signings. Nicolas Otamendi and Edinson Cavani are expected to join later this summer, in addition to Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian. The arrival of Otamendi would push Evans further from first-team action, with Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling all higher up in the pecking order than Evans.

Evans endured a wretched season, affected by poor form from the outset, giving away a terrible goal at MK Dons, injury, and suspension (he received a six-match ban for spitting at Papiss Cisse of Newcastle). He played just 15 games all season, his fewest since his breakthrough season.
