West Brom boss Tony Pulis believes they were right to reject offers for Jonny Evans during the summer transfer window.
Manchester City had two offers rejected for the Northern Ireland international. Arsenal and Leicester also wanted to sign the 29-year-old, who joined West Brom from Manchester United two years ago, but Albion held firm and Evans remained at The Hawthorns.
“We’re pleased that value is that value, and I’m even more pleased we never took [any bid],” Pulis said of the interest in Evans, who was made captain in July after Darren Fletcher left to join Stoke.
“I think he’s done well here in lots of respects. He’s become a better defender. He’s always technically been a good centre-half, but he now has the responsibility of being captain will take him on again.”
