Leicester City have announced the signing of center-back Jonny Evans on a three-year deal from West Brom.
Leicester will pay £3.5m in two installments for the 30-year-old, who returns to the Premier League after his relegation clause was met by the Foxes. The transfer is a sharp piece of business considering Leicester had a £23m bid rejected a year ago by the Baggies. Evans, an experienced defender with 235 Premier League appearances, wore the captains armband for West Brom during their relegation campaign last season. The Northern Ireland international could be a prominent figure in defense for Claude Puel's side next season with Robert Huth set to leave and 34-year-old skipper Wes Morgan expected to play a reduced role.
