Evans was released at the end of the 2022–2023 season after spending time with Leicester.

He has now successfully completed his permanent return to United, where he played for 198 games in his prior assignment.

The 35-year-old expressed his happiness at joining Manchester United, a place that has always felt like home, in a statement posted on the team’s website.

Since I was fifteen years old, this club and its supporters have moulded me both as a player and as a person. I’m thrilled to be a member of this gifted team and to be back where it all started.

Since the beginning of the preseason, I’ve truly liked working under the manager and his coaching staff, and I’m looking forward to contributing to this group’s success at this amazing football club.”

According to John Murtough, United’s football director, “Jonny is a winner who has experienced everything in the game.”

“The culture we’re creating here benefits greatly from these qualities.

“Erik [Ten Hag] and the coaching staff know they can count on him anytime needed this season because of his unwavering work ethic and mindset.

Throughout his final season at Old Trafford, he experienced his fair share of success.

“We all wish Jonny a speedy return and hope he can build on the success he has already experienced with the club.”

Evans came up through United’s system and made his senior debut in 2007 before departing the team eight years later.

After spending three seasons at West Brom, the defender—who has made 91 appearances for Northern Ireland—moved on.

After that, he joined Leicester, and even though the team won the FA Cup in 2021 with him, he was unable to sustain their success the previous season.

But as he approaches his career’s final years, he has now secured a return to the club where it all started.
