Evans wants Sunderland stay

Evans has only made two appearances for the Black Cats so far yet the idea of an extended loan deal appeals strongly to the 19-year-old.

“I'm loving it here,” said Evans.

“I'm delighted Sir Alex Ferguson has given me the chance to come and play in this league. I know it's only a six-month period but we have seen what has happened with Ben Foster. He was part of the squad that got Watford promoted and he has stayed there. It has furthered his development, playing in the Premiership. I don't know whether that would be the case with Sunderland, if we got promoted whether Sir Alex would let me stay. But given the way it's going, I am enjoying it and we will see what happens.”

A permanent deal seems unlikely since Evans only recently signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Manchester United.
