Jonathan Evans is congratulated by Paul Scholes after scoring
Manchester United defender Jonathan Evans is happy to be going on loan to Belgian club Royal Antwerp.

The 17-year-old from Northern Ireland scored for the senior team in Wednesday night's 3-0 friendly win over Celtic.

"I am looking forward to playing competitive football in a different culture - it will be an experience being involved in Belgium," he said.

United boss Alex Ferguson has tipped Evans to win senior international honours for NI in the months ahead.

Evans partnered Wes Brown at the back at Parkhead and enjoyed the occasion as Paul Scholes grabbed a brace in a comfortable win for a young United side.

"Wes has been one of my idols the last two years and I really look up to him," Evans told MUTV.

"To be alongside him and see the way he plays was great for me.

"It was also a pleasure to be on the same pitch as Paul as he has been one of the best players ever."
