'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Evans Would Love To Stay

Jonny Evans' performances just not drop and Roy Keane was delighted with the United loanee's Sunderland debut. A future star?

Jonny Evans got glowing reports wherever he played so far during his career. He impressed for Royal Antwerp, United reserves, Northern Ireland, now Sunderland... surely we see a defender who may easily develop into the highest class.

The 18-year-old Irishman has recently signed a four-and-a-half-year contract at United but the defender would welcome a season-long loan in 2007/08 if Sunderland got promoted.

"I'm loving it here," said Evans.

"I`m delighted Sir Alex Ferguson has given me the chance to come and play in this league.

'I know it`s only a six-month period but we have seen what has happened with Ben Foster. He was part of the squad that got Watford promoted and he has stayed there. It has furthered his development, playing in the Premiership.'

'I don`t know whether that would be the case with Sunderland, if we got promoted whether Sir Alex would let me stay. But given the way it`s going, I am enjoying it and we will see what happens."

His new manager Roy Keane praised the youngster, but added that a permanent deal would be highly unlikely.

"He's a good centre-half, he's young, he reads the game well, he's quick, he's a determined lad and I knew he would not come here just to go through the motions,' Keano said.

'There were other clubs interested in him but this is a great challenge and one he is up for."
