Manchester United defender Jonny Evans is reportedly set to extend his stay with the club by another five-years as he prepares to sign a new contract.

The 24-year-old has made 34 appearances for the Premier League champions this season, perhaps more than he would have imagined with Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic ahead of him in the pecking order.

But with Vidic having been ruled out for the season after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury last year and Ferdinand struggling with problems of his own, Evans has been a calming influence at the back for Sir Alex Ferguson.

According to, the performances of Evans this season will be rewarded with a new deal, and he stands to earn £65,000-a-week over a five year period.

This pay increase will elevate the Northern Ireland international into the third tier of Manchester United earners, which serves as an indication of how highly he is now valued at Old Trafford.

Evans has been with the club since his early teens, having joined United's academy in 2004.
