JONNY Evans completed his second campaign for Albion in 2017 with his reputation as one of the club's finest defenders gathering weight. And the Northern Ireland international was named Club Captain in the summer of 2017.
The versatile defender signed a four-year deal after joining from Manchester United in 2015 since when he has earned the admiration of The Hawthorns for his consummate defending.
He was voted Players' Player of the Season by his Albion team-mates after a hugely impressive debut campaign at The Hawthorns and was goalkeeper Ben Foster's closest challenger in the 2017 awards.
That Evans put together an impressive second season after very little break, following his performances for Northern Ireland at the 2016 Euros, was even more to his credit. He now has more than 50 caps for his country.
He spent eight years at United, coming through the club's successful Academy before making 198 first-team appearances in all competitions during his time at Old Trafford.
Evans made 34 appearances in 2015/16, scoring a dramatic injury-time winner to secure a 2-1 victory over Stoke City on January 2.
He scored twice in the 2016/17 campaign - both back-post headers but with different results. He helped Albion beat Watford 3-1 but his goal on the last day of the season at Swansea was not enough to prevent a 2-1 defeat.
After the departure of Darren Fletcher in the summer of 2017, Jonny was named as Club Captain for the 2017/18 Premier League season.
