Manchester United defender Jonny Evans looks set to leave Old Trafford behind before the close of the transfer window, according to Sky Sports.
The report claims that the Red Devils ace, who has struggled to maintain a regular place in the club's starting XI for some time now, is interested in a move to Everton, while the report suggests that the trio of West Bromwich Albion, Tottenham and Stoke are all interested in the player's services.
The Northern Irishman has seemingly fallen down the pecking order under the guidance of Louis van Gaal at the Theatre of Dreams, and it now appears that there's no way back from him in Manchester.

Evans, 27, of course, was banned for six games towards the end of last season after he allegedly spat at Newcastle United's Papiss Cisse, and that debacle certainly hasn't helped him turn things around.
It remains to be seen as to whether Everton step up their interest in him anytime soon, as the Merseyside outfit go in seach of improvement under Roberto Martinez after last season's tricky campaign.
Good move for Evans
Let's be honest, it's been a frustrating time for Evans at Old Trafford in recent years. There's no doubt about, at 27 years of age, he'd have been hoping to become a regular in the club's back-line by now, but things haven't really worked out for him.
At Everton, though, there may be the opportunity for him to become a leading player under Martinez. He's certainly capable of playing week in, week out in England's elite division, so Toffees officials should try and secure the deal sooner rather than later.
Evans would only bring experience to the Everton back-line and prove a fine option for the club for the foreseeable future. Evans moving to Goodison Park makes sense for all involved.
