Alan Pardew fears losing West Brom captain Jonny Evans in January

Alan Pardew fears losing West Brom captain Jonny Evans in January

Arsenal and Leicester were also interested in the veteran central defender, and with City now likely to come back with a bid it appears West Brom are resigned to losing the 29 year-old.

"There's interest in him because there was interest in the summer and it makes sense to stir it up", Pardew told BBC Sport.

"So your best players are always vulnerable".

"I'm never confident when you've got great players because other clubs want great players", said Pardew. Of course not. Do I fear losing him?

Pardew said he hadn't spoken to Evans about January, and has no plans to "unless he brings it up with me".

"I understand and we deal with it, Jonny's dealt with it in his way".

76ers agree to trade Jahlil Okafor to Nets
The deal will end something of a stand-off between the Sixers and Okafor, as detailed by Wojnarowski . Redick, health of Jerryd Bayless and improvement of players like Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Evans has been linked with Everton, Arsenal and Manchester City in recent times in the Mirror, and all of those clubs look far more appealing than West Ham. "Of course I do".

Pardew recently took over from the sacked Tony Pulis and the former Newcastle United boss led his side to a 0-0 draw against fellow strugglers Crystal Palace in his first game in charge.

West Brom are looking nervously over their shoulders in the Premier League, but West Ham are lodged firmly in the relegation zone.

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.

With the return of two first-team players, punters may decide to use their free bet on the Baggies picking up just their third win of the season and easing their relegation fears. We need to win at least nine games.
