Defender pens four-year deal
JONNY Evans has completed his move to Albion from Manchester United.
The 27-year-old, who signs for an undisclosed fee, penned a four-year deal after undergoing a medical at Albion's training ground last night.
Evans, a Northern Ireland international, made 198 appearances in all competitions during his spell at Old Trafford.
Head coach Tony Pulis said: "This is a great signing for the club.
"Jonny brings a lot of experience and will be a big player for us - he's a player I've been watching for some time.
"We are delighted to have him on board."
Evans is already well-known to several Albion players.
His neighbour and close friend is current Baggies captain Darren Fletcher, with James Chester and Ben Foster among his former United team-mates.
He is also an international colleague of Chris Brunt and Gareth McAuley.
"I hope to push the Albion up the League," said Evans.
"It's a new, fresh challenge for me. One I'm looking forward to.
"I know a few of the lads already and I spoke to a couple, who highy recommended the club."
Evans spent eight years at Manchester United, coming through the club's hugely successful Academy through the first-team.
Regarded as having an ice-cool capacity for handling pressure, Evans made 17 appearances for the Reds last season.
Before establishing himself in the United side, Evans also spent a loan spell with Belgian club Royal Antwerp and two temporary stints with Sunderland, back in 2006/07 and 2008.
The versatile defender - who can play through the centre or in either full-back position - has 42 caps for his country.
