New West Brom manager Alan Pardew will hold talks with defender Jonny Evans to determine his future
Manchester City, Arsenal and Leicester all failed with summer bids for the Albion captain, who the Baggies value at over £30million.
The club plan to offer him a new contract and Pardew is keen to sit down with Evans after being appointed on a deal until 2020 on Wednesday.
“I think the assurance I need is probably from Jonny more than anybody and I haven’t met him yet,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to seeing him. I think he’s a fabulous player and very important for the club so I will have a good old discussion with him.”
Evans has a contract until 2019 after joining from Manchester United for £6million rising to £8million in 2015.
