  • West Brom boss Alan Pardew prepared for possible Jonny Evans departure

West Brom boss Alan Pardew admits he fears losing Jonny Evans next month amid renewed speculation regarding the Albion captain.

Evans has featured 13 times for WBA this season, grabbing one goal, and has only missed three league games for the Baggies.

The former Manchester United defender was the subject of continual interest from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the summer, and City have maintained their pursuit going into the January transfer window despite the move breaking down in August. Of course not. Do I fear losing him?

"I have some good history with Nicky Hammond in terms of what we did at Reading and I trust him 100 per cent on the transfer front and with the scouting team", said Pardew. "Of course I do".

West Brom are also likely to pull out all the stops to keep their man as they aim to pull away from a relegation battle.

Albion travel to bottom-of-the-table Swansea on Saturday knowing a win in south Wales would open up a seven-point gap over their opponents.

Pardew has set his players a target of nine wins in order to retain their top-flight status, and the new boss is keen for three points to be recorded at the Liberty Stadium.

"The earlier you have those talks the better, and we have had those talks this week". A six-pointer is when there's two games to go and you need to win six points to stay in the division. "Swansea are under just as much pressure as we are to get the win".
