Leicester City seem to be a fair way toward grabbing themselves a lovely little pre-World Cup bargain after activating the relegation release clause in Jonny Evans' West Brom contract.

Evans was the subject of failed bids from both Arsenal and Manchester City previous year, but the Foxes now appear to be in pole position to sign the central defender after agreeing a deal to pay £3.5m in two instalments.

Foxes manager Claude Puel is an admirer of the 30-year-old Newtownabbey man.

Evans joined West Brom in 2015 and went on to play 95 games for the club, scoring five goals.
