Jonny Evansâ€™ dream is to play regular first team football for his childhood-club Manchester United. He still believes he can achieve this dream. Ferguson thought it was best for the lad to spend some time out on loan at old-boy Roy Keaneâ€™s Sunderland. The young defender is impressing for Keaneâ€™s side and spoke of how honoured he is to be wanted by the Black Cats manager. Evans helped Sunderland climb up the Championship table last season and clinch promotion to the Premiership. So it comes as no surprise that Keane want to make the move permanent.
Evans said that he would consider joining Sunderland permanently, but this he would do only after Sir Alex Ferguson assures him that he has no future to play at the Red Devils. Evans is currently focussed on winning games and keeping Sunderland out of the relegation zone. But he wants to start discussions with his manager Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of the season, to have a clear view of where his future lies.
â€œWhen Roy Keane says he wants you, it’s a massive compliment. If he wanted to make this move permanent, it’s something I would want to talk about.â€ â€“ Jonny Evans
â€œUnited is the club I support and to have the chance to make it there is still a great opportunity that no player surrenders easily. But if I was ever going to leave Manchester United, Sunderland would definitely be an option for me.â€ â€“ Jonny Evans
