Man City bid for Jonny Evans turned down by West Brom - Pulis

Man City bid for Jonny Evans turned down by West Brom - Pulis

But Pulis says West Brom are under no pressure to cash in on their new club captain.

It has been reported that Pep Guardiola's side had bid £18million for the 29-year-old, although Pulis would not comment on the figure offered.

"We don't want to sell Jonny and we don't need to sell him".

"We don't want to sell Jonny and we don't need to sell him".

"We don't want to take a chance where we lose him for a few weeks".

Evans was the subject of a bid from Arsenal last summer while Leicester have also had an offer for the Northern Ireland global turned down during this close season.

"We've turned down an offer for Jonny", he said, while telling reporters Evans will have a late fitness test on a hamstring injury before heading to Turf Moor.

"Every player is for sale at the right price", admitted Pulis. We don't want to have a player that stays at the football club and is disappointed. "He has just been made captain, wants to get on with his football".

"The good thing this year is that there's a couple of clubs at the top of the tree who are struggling to try and keep their best players". Until all parties agree then nothing will happen.

West Bromwich Albion reportedly make a £15m bid for Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kevin Wimmer.

"Whoever is saying it is close is miles away from that fact", he said. "We have a lot or irons in the fire with a lot of people and we're hoping to get deals done".

West Brom will be without Evans' fellow defender Gareth McAuley and midfielder James Morrison due to respective thigh and knee injuries at the weekend, but veteran holding player Gareth Barry is available after his arrival from Everton. "Jonny, we're not ruling him definitely out yet but he might miss tomorrow".
