Leicester trigger £3m release clause for Evans
Leicester have triggered Jonny Evans' £3million release clause and are close to signing the defender from West Brom.
The Foxes have moved to seal a bargain deal after Albion's Premier League relegation. They are confident of completing the move having been long-term admirers of the 30-year-old.
Leicester failed with several bids last summer as the Baggies rejected their offers, the final one close to £23million.
But because of West Brom's drop into the Sky Bet Championship, Evans is available for a cut-price £3million and is expected to leave The Hawthorns.
Arsenal had an approach rejected in January as the Baggies kept Evans for their failed relegation fight last season.
