According to Portsmouth based newspaper ‘The News’, Bolton Wanderers are leading the chase to sign Pompey attacking midfielder, Gareth Evans.
An article from The News states:
“The News understands the attacking-midfielder is edging closer to the Fratton Park exit, bringing his five-year stay on the south coast to an end.
League Two Bolton are believed to be front-runners for his signature, although there is interest from other clubs up north.
Evans didn’t train with his Blues team-mates today ahead of the weekend visit of Wigan.
It is believed he was putting the finishing touches to his move away, with the 32 year-old keen to move closer to his family in Greater Manchester.
Evans, from Macclesfield, started Pompey’s first three games of the season, operating in the number 10 role behind lone front man John Marquis.
However, he has all of a sudden found himself back down the pecking order following the arrival of former Wigan ace Michael Jacobs last week.”
Evans spent time as a youngster with Manchester United, before moving back to Crewe to begin his professional career in 2006.
The attacking number 10 has plenty of experience getting out of League Two, having been promoted with Rotherham United, Fleetwood Town (played with Sarcevic) & Portsmouth.
If Evans does join, where does that leave the likes of Ronan Darcy?
