West Brom head coach Tony Pulis has confirmed the club have rejected an offer from Manchester City for Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans.

Manchester City have been told to up their £18m bid for West Brom centre-back Jonny Evans to £35m.

While Pulis stopped short of revealing that City had shown interest, the Baggies boss acknowledged that an approach had been made, but that the West Midlands outfit were not in a position where they had to consider the offer.

"We'd love him to stay".

"It's market forces. The two things are, firstly we don't want to sell him, we don't need to sell him".

"It would need to be a very good offer". Jonny is happy here and wants to get on with his football.

But he added: "I think every player is for sale at the right price".

Jonny understands the situation and where everything is.

"We don't want to take a chance where we lose him for a few weeks".

Pulis insists Evans is happy to remain at The Hawthorns, although he admits the central defender could miss Saturday's Premier League trip to Burnley with a hamstring problem.

"It is absolutely insane to say a team like West Brom won't sell players if people weren't going to put an enormous amount of money in front of you".

Tottenham are advanced talks to sell defender Kevin Wimmer to West Brom for £15million rising to a potential £20million, according to a report.

Pulis said: "When it's Man City or one of the top four or five clubs, it's very, very hard then because it affects the player because they have the chance to better themselves".

"We hope Gareth is going to come in and be that person in the dressing room, he's got a lot of experience, he's won a lot of trophies, we're hoping and praying that he plays as well for us as he did his other clubs".
