Manchester City to go back using £25m make available with regard to Jonny Evans.

Manchester City will launch a third bid, of more than £25 million, to sign Jonny Evans from West Bromwich Albion.

City’s latest offer, worth £18 million, was rejected last week but Pep Guardiola, the head coach, is determined to sign the former Manchester United centre back. First, though, he must offload Eliaquim Mangala, whom they have been trying to sell all summer but who is likely to now leave on loan to Inter Milan.

Evans’s transfer to City is also not expected to take place until West Brom have signed a replacement. Tony Pulis, the West Brom head coach, is keen to sign Kevin Wimmer, as well as his Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Vincent Janssen, the striker. One factor that could help to speed up Evans’s move is that he will be training at City’s Football Academy next week with Northern Ireland before their World Cup qualifier away to San Marino a week today.

West Brom have brought Oliver Burke back to English football from Leipzig, beating Crystal Palace in the race for the Scotland and former Nottingham Forest winger.

The 20-year-old moved to Germany from Forest for £13 million last summer but struggled to settle. “I’m here, I want to impress and I want my name to be first on the team sheet,” he said.


Leonardo Ulloa has signed a contract at Leicester City until 2019, eight months after he handed in a transfer request and accused the then manager, Claudio Ranieri, of betrayal in breaking a promise that he could leave the club.


Huddersfield Town are considering a move for Robert Green, the Leeds United goalkeeper. Huddersfield yesterday completed the loan signing of Florent Hadergjonaj, the Switzerland right back, from Ingolstadt.

Kyle Bartley, the Swansea City defender, is set to spend two months on the sidelines with a medial ligament injury suffered in the 4-1 Carabao Cup victory at MK Dons on Tuesday.

Juan Foyth is expected to travel to London in the next few days to have a medical and discuss personal terms with Tottenham Hotspur, who agreed a fee of about £12 million for the Estudiantes defender. Hull City are close to signing Isaac Success, the winger, on loan from Watford.
