Crewe Sign Evans

28 October 2013

Alex complete loan signing of City and England starlet

.Crewe Alexandra have this afternoon finalised the loan signing of the Manchester City midfielder George Evans on a three-month loan agreement. The 18-year-old has signed until 3rd February 2014 after catching the eye for City’s Development Squad

The defensive midfield player has been a regular for Patrick Vieira’s Under-21 side and has also been capped by England at Under-16, Under-17s and was recently included in the Under-19 squad. The Cheadle-born Evans knows our young players Max Clayton and Ben Garratt from England get-togethers and our former player Nick Powell from the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Mexico that took place in the summer of 2011.

Evans’ form has been that impressive at Manchester City that he was rewarded with a place on the substitutes’ bench for the club’s Champions League tie against Ajax last season in Amsterdam.

The highly-rated youngster also featured for England at the Nordic Tournament at Under-16 level and the Montaigu Tournament a year later.

George will wear the number 22 shirt and the transfer is subject to Football Association clearance.
