Evans delivers blow to Sunderland
Man Utd defender Jonny Evans will not return to Sunderland on loan
Evans decision to stay at Old Trafford is a blow to Roy Keane
Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has confirmed he will not be returning to Sunderland on loan next season.

The news is a blow to Black Cats boss Roy Keane who was hoping to re-sign Evans, 19, who played a key role in Sunderland's promotion.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson wants Evans to fight for a place at Manchester United.

Evans said: "It was made clear I won't be going on loan again, I'll be involved in pre-season and it's more or less been said I will get games."

Keane returned to his former club in January to sign Northern Ireland international Evans on loan to the end of the season.

He made 19 appearances for the Black Cats and was an integral part of their remarkable run to clinch the Championship title and automatic promotion.

Evans added: "I'm a Manchester United fan and it's always been my aim since I signed for the club to get into the first-team."
