Wolves are eyeing Manchester United defender Jonny Evans.

The Express & Star says Wolves manager Mick McCarthy wanted to recruit Evans more than two years ago, before Wolves were promoted, but the Northern Ireland international enjoyed two separate loan spells at Sunderland instead, helping Roy Keane’s side to the Championship title in 2006-07 and then gaining Premier League experience the season after.

But Wolves have kept a close eye on the 24-year-old and McCarthy would relish the chance of signing Evans.

Evans, who has been United’s back-up with Chris Smalling in the absence of Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic, has seen his chances of regular football take a dip with the £20million arrival of Phil Jones this summer.
