West Brom defender Jonny Evans says he is determined to return to the club and focus on his role as club captain.
We’re not involved in that process but everything was left on good terms because it was a hypothetical situation. I just want to get on with what I was doing and see what happens.
I’m a West Brom player and I’m the captain. I spoke about that in my programme notes last week and I’ll be looking forward to going back and seeing the lads.
Pep Guardiola’s side were interested in signing the player this summer but were unable to match West Brom’s asking price.
Manchester City were said to have an interest in a deal that could see Evans leave the club on deadline day, but the player had jetted off on international duty, which complicated the deal.
City were in the market for a defender as Guardiola continued his summer of spending at the Etihad.
The Baggies themselves will have been pleased with their summer transfer business.
Tony Pulis’ side spent over £30 million bringing in the likes of Oliver Burke, Gareth Barry, Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs and Jay Rodriguez.
