Jonny Evans Said To Prefer Newcastle Over Sunderland


Manchester United youngster Jonny Evans is interesting Newcastle United, even though the player has had two successful loan spells at North East rivals Sunderland.

jonny-evans-and-girlfriend.jpg

Jonny Evans – with girlfriend Kate Wathall – is she a Newcastle fan?

The rumors circulating on Jonny (yes even more rumors and gossip), is that he would be keen to join Newcastle United, since his girlfriend Kate Wathall is currently studying at Newcastle University.

His two loan spells at Sunderland were welcomed by the youngster, since he could be close to Kate, and it’s said that Jonny would prefer to join Newcastle over Sunderland, if given the choice.

How true this is we don’t know, but hopefully the powers that be at Newcastle should meet with Kate, and try to convince her to convince Jonny to join the Magpies – of course.    😀

As most people know,  woman can be very influential with men, and footballers are no exception. 😀

As we reported recently, Alex Ferguson will not let Jonny go anywhere until the Red Devils have more cover at central defense, but it appears like Jonny may be willing to head to Newcastle United for first team football.

That could be either permanent, or a loan move for next season. He’s rated around £7M.

And this  could all be good news for us, because what we’ve seen of Jonny Evans, he looks a great young player in the making.

Comments welcome.

    He’s a right back isn’t he?? So he won’t get much first team footie with Beye in the team.

    Plus he was under investigation by the police at Christmas for a rape at the Man Utd Christmas party.

    Don’t we have enough police investigations with Barton without buying another player who could land us in trouble?

    Agreed James. If we’re going for right back cover, surely we need to clarify whether or not there was any wrong doing with this player.

    I’ve already been very clear on how I feel about JB, I’d be a hypocrite if I said we should sign this lad without knowing what baggage might be coming with him.

    If he’s cleared, all well and good, but I don’t think he’s going to want to be a bench warmer for Beye.

    Firstly he is centre back, played there all his career.

    Secondly he was cleared of that incident that apparently took place at the Man United Christmas party.

    I have heard off a lot of Sunderland fans that he is a very solid centre back.

    Would be a good signing although 7 million sounds a bit steep.

    He is a CB, a bit of a trouble-maker in my book, and certainly not worth 7m (!!). Stay clear.

    That was all dropped but probably a worry if he is getting himself up to no good at such an early stage of his career. we have enough idiots at the club at the moment.

    If we are after the best young players we could do worse than Ivan Rakitić, thought he was outstanding during euro 2008. He is only 20 but looks fantastic on the ball.

    By the way, I just read that Bayern have offered Podolski to Cologne for 11m pounds because they prefer not to sell him to a rival club.

    I don’t think we would be perceived as a rival club and I think we should make an offer of 10m and see what happens.

    I thought he was a northern Ireland central defender? Seven million seems a lot for a young player already carrying baggage? The price could be Fergie Talk though. Would not be in the least suprised if he was covering for the Ron and Roon goon show. I will rely on KK on this one.

    He was equitted of all charges over the rape. The girls were kiss and tell girls, trying to corner Rooney, Ronaldo etc etc for a out of court payout. It happens alot, just look at the England Rugby players in New Zealand!

    There’s a difference between him and JB, JB got charged and banged up. Evans was equitted when charges were dropped. Massive difference.

    He looked decent for Sunderland, but then we’ll have another young CB. We need an experienced and commanding CB for Taylor and other youngsters to learn from. Faye can be great, but not what we need and Cacapa had problems at times, but really did look impressive when he performed to his up most ability. Maybe Cacapa will be given the nod as the defensive lynch pin, I don’t know.

    Either way, if we can get JE for £4-£5m then it could be a decent buy!

    “MANCHESTER United player Jonny Evans will not face charges over an alleged rape at the team’s Christmas party.

    Police said yesterday the decision was taken after they presented evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service.

    Evans, now 20, was arrested after a woman made an allegation of rape at the team’s Christmas party at the Great John Street hotel in Manchester.

    Police were called to the hotel at 4.15am on December 18 last year after receiving calls that a 26-year-old woman had been raped.

    Defender Evans, who has won nine caps for Northern Ireland, was arrested later that evening and then released on police bail.

    The CPS said there was “insufficient evidence” to charge Evans, who was sent out on loan to Sunderland in January.

    Carol Jackson, head of the rape and family abuse team at City of Manchester CPS, said: “We have decided that there is not enough evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction.”

    A police spokeswoman said no charges would be brought against the alleged victim.”

    Centre half with loads of potential….7 million is a tad high but imagine Evans and Taylor in a couple of years time…..would be a good signing imo…..young, hungry to prove himself with his best years to come…

    ps….he was not found guily of any wrong doing regarding the allegations earlier in the year….where has the crack about innocent until proven guilty gone????….

    my sunderland supporting buddys always raved about him.

    it is true his girlfriend goes to newcastle uni. she is originally from sheffield.

    I doubt very much if anyone would be surprised if he would prefer a move to newcastle as opposed to sunderland.

    we are still able to boast the likes of Michael owen, Oba Martins, Mark Viduka and Habib Beye, As opposed to Kenwye Jones, Paul Mcshane and Danny Higginbottom.

    now will people stop believing the press about signings and lack of money. not once did this get mentioned in the press, and now he has signed. as some of us have said many times newcastle are doing the work in the transfer market behind closed doors and will get players in.

    from the chronicle
    2 2008 Evening Chronicle

    NEWCASTLE UNITED have swooped to sign Argentina international Jonas Gutierrez from Spanish side Real Mallorca.

    ChronicleLive can confirm the arrival of Gutierrez, with the La Liga ace becoming Kevin Keegan’s first major signing since he thrilled the fans by arriving back on Tyneside.

    The 24-year-old is renowned for pulling on a Spiderman mask after scoring goals in Spain and he arrives in the Premier League as a skilful right winger.

    The club have not disclosed the fee for the star, but Manchester City were ready to splash out £7m for the South American during Sven Goran Eriksson’s reign at Eastlands.

    Spurs and Portsmouth were also linked with bids earlier this year.

    Gutierrez has signed a five-year deal and will bolster Kevin Keegan’s current squad which has been depleted by the departures of several players.

    The fans will hope that Gutierrez brings some flair to a side which struggled badly last season, and provide the bullets for Michael Owen, Mark Viduka, Oba Martins and Andy Carroll.
