Jonny Evans has revealed Darren Fletcher helped convince him that West Brom was the right club for him, ahead of his £6-8m move this week.
I spoke to Fletch regularly. I rang him just after he had made the move here from United and he said how much he was enjoying his football. When West Brom came in for me, it definitely had an influence on me. I was able to speak to Fletch quite a few times and he assured me he was still enjoying it. I think there comes a time in everyone’s career when it is good to have a new challenge and mine has come now. I think I’m at a good age where I can make an impact, and I wanted the opportunity to do that.
