"I'm never confident when you've got great players because other clubs want great players", said Pardew. Course not. Do I fear losing him?

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, will see Per Mertesacker retire at the end of the current campaign.

Evans moved to the Hawthorns from Manchester United in the summer of 2015 and has since racked up seventy-eight appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals.

"There was interest in him in the summer so it makes sense to stir it up".

"I understand and we deal with it, Jonny's dealt with it in his way".


"I thought he was outstanding against Crystal Palace, and now we go to Swansea". Jonny Evans is one of those. Do I want to lose him? Of course I do.

The Baggies have not won a Premier League match since the 1-0 triumph over Burnley on August 19 and their terrible run of form has seen the club slip to 17th in the table, just three points above the relegation zone.

Alan Pardew's men travel to Swansea City on Saturday afternoon and are priced at 2/1 for the win.

Asked if the match at the Liberty Stadium was a six-pointer, Pardew said: 'No.

With the return of two first-team players, punters may decide to use their free bet on the Baggies picking up just their third win of the season and easing their relegation fears.
