I’ve no problem with this move whatsoever. Noone could have forseen two first team CB’s going down with lengthy serious injuries during pre-season.
If it happens, It’s not particularly a panic buy, more of a calculated emergency purchase.
This close to the start of the season we need someone right now ready to go. Someone who is affordable yet has the necessary experience - we already have young CBs.
Not saying Evans is a god send, hardly, but he’s far from shite and could do a job. We tend to go on a lot about having players for the future, but in this instance we could do with plugging a hole left by two injured first team centre halves.
