Prior to joining Leicester City, Evans spent a total of three seasons as a West Brom player, making a total of 96 appearances for the Baggies in all competitions according to Transfermarkt.co.uk. 

The Northern Ireland international may have made a lasting impression on some Baggies fans during his time with the club, as some West Brom supporters have been swooning over their former defender on social media following his impressive defensive performance versus Aston Villa on Monday, with some expressing regret that their club “let him go for so little”.

Who is the oldest player to make an appearance in the Championship this season?

What do we think?

Evans, who is valued at £13.5 million (as per Transfermarkt), has been an important player for a Leicester City side currently sitting in third place in the Premier League this season. The Northern Irish defender is one of only two players to have appeared in all 29 of The Foxes’ Premier League games so far during the 2019/20 campaign, along with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. 

Furthermore, Evans has also impressively started in all 29 of Leicester’s Premier League games so far this season. Considering the important role Evans has played for third-placed Leicester City this season, it may be understandable why some West Brom fans have shown regret at selling the defender for just £3.60 million, a lower fee than the £7.47 million they had originally paid to sign Evans.
