West Brom caretaker boss Moore: I'll keep selecting Evans

West Brom caretaker boss Darren Moore insists he'll count on Jonny Evans to the end of the season.

It's been a poor season for the club captain who has failed to hit the heights of his last campaign and was one of four senior players who allegedly stole a taxi in Barcelona.

But Moore has defended the Northern Irishman's character and insists he has no problems playing him in the remaining few games.

“The incident what's gone is gone," he said. “As a character and as a gentleman, he's a solid and respectful man.

"I communicate with him on a daily basis, he's got a wonderful sense of humour. And he's a leader. That's what I will say about Jonny.

“I'm delighted that he's here at the football club, really pleased to have the opportunity to work with him and may that continue.

“What happens with Jonny in the future, we can't comment on that now. That isn't decided yet. He's still under contract at the football club.

"Everybody will speculate over that, I can't control that.

“What I can tell you is he's an excellent player, he's still here at West Bromwich Albion and he still has a huge part to play at this club in the remaining games this season."
