Central defender proving a snip at £3.5m for Leicester City

Jonny Evans has really stepped up at the King Power Stadium under Brendan Rodgers.

Leicester City claimed a massive victory over Arsenal yesterday afternoon with Brendan Rodgers’ men running out 3-0 winners.

Jamie Vardy struck twice in the game after Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans had opened the scoring for the Foxes. Ainsley Maitland-Niles saw red for the Gunners on a frustrating afternoon for them.

Ex-England striker Vardy has led the way once again for Leicester this season netting 17 goals for the club. His form since Rodgers arrived at the King Power Stadium has given his team a great chance of a top half finish.

Perhaps an unspectacular choice, but Jonny Evans would be another good shout for Signing of the Season, if not Player of the Season. The £3.5 million (BBC Sport) signing from West Bromwich Albion has been in magnificent form of late.

 

The 31-year-old is another player who has looked like a completely different player since Rodgers arrived at the football club. The central defender has looked solid, calm and assured of late for the Foxes.

In today’s market, £3.5 million is next to nothing and Rodgers has shown yet again his ability to get the best out of a player who isn’t necessarily a top name.

Evans might have been forgiven for thinking his future looked bleak prior to Rodgers’ arrival but right now he is making a mockery of his paltry transfer fee.
