West Brom captain Darren Fletcher praises Evans signing.

West Brom captain Darren Fletcher has said Jonny Evans is one of the best defenders he has ever played with.

Evans left Manchester United for the The Hawthorns in the summer after spending over 10 years at Old Trafford, winning three Premier League titles.

"Jonny is a fantastic signing. I spoke about it when he came and I was so excited when he signed," Fletcher said.

"He's a top player. A great leader and a good talker and I think it's a fantastic signing for the Albion and he's going to be a mainstay in that defence for a number of years and it's no coincidence that (clean sheets) and there's more to come as well.

"He's a great lad and I can't speak highly enough of him. I knew we were getting a top, top player - one of the best defenders I've ever played with at Manchester United and now here."
