Tomorrow's opponents Arsenal have also shown an interest with Evans' contract up in 2019. But Pardew insists he will face the Gunners and West Ham on Tuesday.
Pardew said “We are pretty tight financially. I am conscious if there are no funds available I might have to move something around.
“I have to get goals on the board otherwise you can't win games. So there is a scenario Jonny Evans might move and for sure I have looked at that.
“He has all the qualities for a top team.
“I would be stupid to sit here and deny that.
“There have been astonishing figures for defenders all through the summer really.
“If you look at defenders and compare Jonny with central defenders in the Premier League he is right up there."
