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.

West Brom dismiss Arsenal's £12m bid for Jonny Evans on transfer deadline day . The Baggies were willing to sell the defender for the right price this month. West Brom manager Alan Pardew had previously warned interested clubs that he would set an 'early deadline ' for his captain's departure.

ALAN PARDEW has told Manchester City and Arsenal he won ’ t be selling £35m-rated Jonny Evans on deadline day .

“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.

Pardew has no plans to sell Salomón Rondón .
Alan Pardew is keen to bring in “one or two” more players this month, but isn’t planning on letting Salomón Rondón leave to fund additions. Everton and Liverpool are two clubs who have been linked to the big Venezuelan forward in recent days, although the Baggies have yet to receive an official offer for the striker. However, even if an offer had come in, Pardew is reluctant to sell, because the 28-year is a big part of his plans for the second half of the season relegation battle. Pardew said; “Salomon has been absolutely brilliant since I’ve been here. He has been playing terrific football without getting reward in terms of goals.” “That’s the next part of the ingredient for him, in my tenure here.” “He showed his leadership quality in response to McCarthy’s injury. We wish him the best. But we go on. Salomon is not part of any deal.” Albion have been linked with a number of offensive players as they approach a tough second half of the season, including an audacious move for former Chelsea and German World Cup winner Andre Schürrle. However, Pardew has poured cold water on said speculation, saying; “Agents release this to feather their own nest. Oh we’re interested to get another club interested and the like.” “The only thing I will confirm is what you already know, is that Jonny Evans is a target for other clubs.” “We won’t necessarily need to sell first. We might sell if the price is right. Everything else is pure speculation. If we are going to do something I’m not going to tell you, and I wouldn’t tell you.
