Jonny Evans and Omari Forson in talks over new deals

Manchester United are in talks with defender Jonny Evans over extending his stay at the club.

The 36-year-old returned to United last summer from Leicester City, eight years after his initial departure from Old Trafford.

The Northern Ireland international initially started training with the club during pre-season to maintain his fitness but was handed a one-year deal after impressing Erik ten Hag.

Evans went on to make 30 appearances last season, including a substitute appearance in the FA Cup win against Manchester City at Wembley.

The club have also confirmed they remain in conversations with goalkeeper Tom Heaton over a new deal, while a contract has been offered to Omari Forson.

Forson, 19, was handed his Premier League debut in February’s 4-3 win against Wolves, when he provided the assist for Kobbie Mainoo’s winner at Molineux.

The London-born forward made six further appearances but he is yet to be persuaded to sign a new deal at the club.

Brandon Williams, Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane will all be released on 30 June, when their deals expire.
