Leicester are closing in on defender Jonny Evans after triggering the £3million release clause in his West Brom contract, according to reports.

Evans had been linked with a possible move to Arsenal but, following West Brom's relegation from the Premier League, the Foxes appear in pole position to sign the Northern Ireland international.

The 30-year-old Belfast-born central defender, who has played 70 times for his country, joined the Baggies from Manchester United in 2015.
