Leicester City have completed the £3.5million signing of West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans.
Evans, 30, completed his medical on Thursday and has penned a three-year deal with the Foxes, the club revealed on their official website on Friday.
Evans told the club website: “It’s great to join and I’m happy it’s all gone through. When this opportunity came up, it’s one that I couldn’t turn down. It’s an ambitious club, the owners are ambitious and everyone wants to push the club forward.
“I hope that I can give lots to the team and the club. It’s a great place to play football, the fans really get behind the team and the players are fantastic – these are all factors that made me want to sign for this football club.”
Evans has been a long-term target for Leicester, who tried to land the former Manchester United defender last summer but had multiple bids of up to £23m rejected.
Evans becomes Leicester’s second signing of the transfer window following the £22m arrival of Porto right-back Ricardo Pereira.
Evans will become teammates with Nigeria stars Wilfred Ndidi and Kekechi Iheanacho.
