Leicester have reportedly opened contract talks with Jonny Evans

Evans impressing

Jonny Evans joined Leicester City from West Brom in the summer of 2018.

The Foxes are understood to have paid around £3.6m to bring the stopper to the King Power.

Said fee has since proven something of a bargain, with Evans going on to become a key cog in Leicester’s backline in recent times.

The Northern Irishman formed a great partnership with Caglar Soyuncu at the heart of Leicester’s backline last term, with the duo a key reason why Brendan Rodgers’ side were able to secure a European berth.

Evans has since had a few injury issues this campaign, but he would return to action last weekend to help Leicester keep a clean sheet vs Wolves – a result which meant they headed into the international break sitting pretty atop of the Premier League.

Evans set for new Leicester deal?

In terms of his Leicester future, Evans is now 32 years of age and will be 33 by the time his current contract runs out at the end of this season.

As a result, Leicester fans may have assumed they would be parting ways with their star centre-back sooner rather than later.

However, despite his age, it seems those in a position of power at Leicester are keen to tie the former Manchester United man down to fresh terms.

As per the Athletic, Leicester have opened talks with Evans over a new contract, with negotiations said to be in the formative stages.

It is added that both sides are on the same page when it comes to negotiations and are confident there will be no obstacles over reaching an agreement:
