Sports Tottenham ‘line up transfer deal for Manchester United’s Jonny Evans’

Tottenham are reportedly eyeing a transfer bid for Manchester United centre-back Jonny Evans.

Evans was once touted by Sir Alex Ferguson as ‘arguably the best defender in the country’, but he has had a difficult time under new boss Louis van Gaal.

The Northern Ireland international has only made ten appearances for United this season, and is being monitored by Spurs ahead of a summer transfer, according to reports.

The north London side have struggled defensively this season, conceding 53 goals, and Mauricio Pochettino could be tempted to make an offer for Evans.

Sports Everton plan summer moves for unwanted Man United duo Tom Cleverley and Jonny Evans

Cleverley is surplus to requirements and has been on loan at Aston Villa for the whole campaign.

Whilst Evans has endured a tough season with injuries and a six-match ban for spitting on Papiss Cisse.

The Daily Mirror claim that Evans will be shipped-out to make way for Mats Hummels and Nicolas Otamendi and could command a fee of £10million.

And former United great Paul Scholes predicts Cleverley will also make the move to Goodison Park.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "I have a feeling that he might go to Everton.

"I think Martinez likes him. I think he will suit their style of play."

Ukip deputy Suzanne Evans insists: 'I’m loyal to Nigel Farage'

Ms Evans made her declaration of loyalty as the civil war at the top of Ukip intensified with the party’s only MP, Douglas Carswell, publicly calling on Mr Farage to quit.

During the week Ukip’s millionaire donor, Arron Banks, had demanded her resignation, along with Mr Carswell and Patrick O’ Flynn, as he questioned their loyalty to the party’s under-pressure leader.

But last night Ms Evans hit back at his suggestion she had been involved in the attempted coup.

She said: “I absolutely don’t think I have done anything wrong at all.

“I have worked extremely hard for the party over the last two years and particularly over the last few months when I wrote the manifesto.”

She added: “Unfortunately when you get into these situations and the backstabbing starts, it is quite hard to know who is pointing what finger, but nobody should question my loyalty to the party or to Nigel.”

Ms Evans said she had been told to expect an apology from Mr Banks, who has threatened to quit the party if Mr Farage is removed as leader.

She blamed two former Farage advisors, Raheem Kassam and Matthew Richardson, who left the party’s employment last week over claims of negative briefings.

She called on Mr Farage not to punish Mr O’Flynn, the party’s economic spokesman, for his remarks last week when he called the Ukip leader “snarling, thin-skinned and aggressive.”

Ms Evans was appointed interim leader of the party before Mr Farage retracted his resignation on Monday.

She said she had tried to persuade the Ukip leader to stay on.

Tories must boost defence if they want a pact, says Ukip's Evans

In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Express, Miss Evans said Ukip would work with the Tories if it matched the manifesto commitment to spend two per cent of the UK’s GDP on defence. She said other potential negotiations would involve the Tories agreeing to a rapid referendum on EU membership, as well as their pledge not to levy tax on those earning the minimum wage.Miss Evans expects to play a key role in any talks, which may begin as early as tomorrow and focus on a post-election pact.

Miss Evans expects to play a key role in any talks, which may begin as early as tomorrow and focus on a post-election pact. She revealed: “Yes, we could work with the Conservatives. But we couldn’t work with Labour while they refuse to have an EU referendum.”

Miss Evans, seen as the party’s rising star after writing its manifesto, predicts Ukip will win at least eight seats but claims there may also be a “few surprises along the way.”

She faces an uphill struggle to win power in Shrewsbury but said: “We will also get a lot of second places and that will be a launch pad for 2020.”

She has been tipped as a future leader and said: “If Nigel Farage did stand down for whatever reason and he asks me to stand then I would.”

Website supporting rapist footballer Ched Evans is not illegal, say lawyers

The site - which pushes for Evans' conviction to be quashed - includes pixelated footage of his 19-year-old victim from the hotel in Rhyl, north Wales, where the rape took place.

It is understood her father made a complain which prompted the Attorney General to ask the Crown Prosecution Service to examine whether any laws had been broken over potentially identifying his victim - who has anonymity for life.

Ed Beltrami, the Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS Wales, said today there was insufficient evidence to charge anyone.

He said: "This case concerned the publishing of CCTV on the website chedevans.com and allegation that it could lead to the identification of a rape victim. 

"Each case is considered on its own facts and merits. In order to undertake a prosecution, the law would require us to prove that it was 'likely' that a member of the public could identify the victim from the CCTV footage posted on the website."

He ruled that because the footage was pixelated and there was nothing else "sufficiently distinctive" in the footage it was unlikely a member of the public could identify the victim.

Mr Beltrami added: "Jigsaw identification was also considered; namely whether or not this CCTV, in conjunction with information about the victim that was already in the public domain, could lead to identification

"It was decided that a member of the public would still be unlikely to identify the victim were they aware of both the CCTV and other information."

However he warned that the decision "does not imply any finding concerning guilt or criminal conduct". 

Former Sheffield United and Wales star Evans, 26, was jailed for five years in 2012 and released last year.

He has always maintained his innocence and is fighting to take his case to appeal.

On Monday his legal team submitted two interviews to the Criminal Cases Review Commission - which were said to "further strengthen" his case. 

Evans has been unable to resume his football career since his release due to public pressure.

His victim, who is entitled to lifelong anonymity over the attack, is said to have been forced into hiding and had to move home five times after being 'outed' by his supporters three years ago.

Nine people who tweeted the complainant's name shortly after Evans' conviction at Caernarfon Crown Court were all ordered to pay her compensation of £624.00 each.

In January Evans said: "Whilst I continue to maintain my innocence, I wish to make it clear that I wholeheartedly apologise for the effect that that night in Rhyl has had on many people, especially the woman concerned."

Sports Rotherham manager Steve Evans ready for 'biggest game of all'

They would be safe already had it not been for a three-point deduction by the Football League but they can condemn Wigan and Millwall to the drop if they win this match.

In the club’s opening two years at their new the AESSEAL New York Stadium, both of their final games of the season ended in celebratory pitch invasions - firstly after winning promotion from League Two in 2013 and then by reaching the League One play-off final after beating Preston last year.

A win against Reading could lead to similar scenes as the Millers would achieve safety for what would be the second time in Evans’ mind.

The club could yet still appeal the league’s decision to dock them three points, even though that could end up being academic.

“This is the biggest game of all, the biggest game ever that the stadium has hosted in its short life time,” said Evans.

“It’s a big opportunity to secure our Championship status. They can take our points but they can’t take our desire.”
