Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans has re-signed for Manchester United on a one-year deal.
The 35-year-old, who has 102 caps for his country, had been on a short-term contract with his former club over the summer and his performances in pre-season impressed United boss Erik Ten Hag sufficiently for him to offer Evans a permanent deal.
“I am delighted to join Manchester United, a place which has always felt like home,” said Evans, who left the club eight years ago to join West Brom.
“This club and the fans have shaped me as a player and as a person since I was 15 years old, and I am delighted to be back where it all began as part of this talented squad.
“I’ve really enjoyed working under the manager and his coaching staff since the start of pre-season, and I’m looking forward to helping this group achieve success together at this fantastic football club.”
During his first spell at the club between 2007 and 2015, Evans made 198 appearances for United winning three Premier League titles and the Champions League under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Evans was this week named in Michael O'Neill's 24-man Northern Ireland squad to face Slovenia (away, 7 September) and Kazakhstan (away, 10 September).
