Man Utd’s Evans wants Sunderland stay

Evans said: “Definitely. I don’t know what United’s plans are for me yet but I’ve enjoyed it so much that I would definitely think about staying here next season if Sunderland wanted me and United let me.

“I would rather be playing every week than sitting on the bench. You have to have faith in your own ability, but you also have to be realistic and when you look at the number of established defenders there are at Old Trafford, you have to accept that as a 19-year-old learning your trade, you’re not going to be keeping them out of the team every week and it’s only going to be every so often that you’re going to get games.”
