West Brom manager Alan Pardew has warned that he won’t be forced to sell Jonny Evans on deadline day.

Pardew has set a cut-off point of three days before the window shuts, if clubs want to make their move to sign the Northern Ireland defender.

Arsenal and Manchester City have been linked with big money moves for the former Manchester United defender, but Pardew will be hoping Evans chooses to remain at the Hawthorns if Albion are to retain their Premier League status.

So far there have been no concrete offers for the Baggies’ captain, however Pardew says that he has had a word with the player on the side. Pardew said;

No bids yet for Evans says Pardew

  No bids yet for Evans says Pardew Alan Pardew says that West Brom have yet to receive an official offer for Jonny Evans. The Albion club captain has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months including Everton, Arsenal and former club Manchester United, and he was heavily linked with Manchester City last summer. The Northern Ireland international has just 18 months left on his current deal at the Hawthorns, and although the club haven’t received an offer yet, Pardew has admitted that the club have made plans for life without Evans. When asked whether West Brom would retain Evans, Pardew said; “It is very much about the bid coming first because there is so much speculation.” “We need to see a bid and we haven’t seen a bid so all I can report is the facts. We haven’t received a bid so Jonny stays here.” Pardew also revealed that the club would have “no problem” with offering a new deal to Evans, but that he would not be involved in potential financial negotiations. He added; “We would give Jonny a new deal – there is no problem about that. I think he is very much aware of that.” “I think it is about the player and the club coming to an agreement. I don’t do that side of the finance but of course we want to keep our best players.” West Brom will need to keep Evans for as long as possible if they are to remain in the Premier League for next season. They are currently on a 20-game winless run in the Premier League, while languishing in 19th place in the league table.

“I think it would have been inappropriate not to have had him on side and had a word. I think we’ve got a good respect for each other and we looked each other in the eye.”

“The thing with Jonny is not a new thing to this football club – it was going on in the summer. It’s new to me having just come here but it’s been around for while.”

“I had a similar situation with Yohan Cabaye at Newcastle. He was definitely, definitely going – but he didn’t go. I will put a cut-off date on any transfer.”

“That’s why I’d say three or four days before the window shuts and no later if it’s a big transfer of an important player.”

If Albion do sell Evans this month, they’ll be expecting to receive around £35million for him.

West Brom's move for Mitrovic depends on Evans' future .
According to Sky Sports, West Brom’s pursuit of Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic depends on whether or not they sell Jonny Evans this month. The Baggies have been linked with Serbia international Mitrovic for some weeks now but no move has materialised just yet. The former Anderlecht man is keen to leave Newcastle as he goes in search of regular first-team game time. However, West Brom are currently in a precarious financial position and will need to raise funds before they press ahead with their plans to land Mitrovic, if Sky Sports are to be believed. Evans has been touted with moves to many big clubs in recent times. Manchester City and Arsenal have been heavily linked with the Northern Ireland international in the last couple of transfer windows and both clubs remain without depth in central defence. Alan Pardew wants to keep Evans at the club but faces a dilemma, with the Baggies boss also keen to bolster his West Brom squad.
