Northern Ireland international Corry Evans is a free agent after his contract with English Championship giants Blackburn Rovers ran out at the end of last month. Corry Evans is without a club meaning that he’s free to sign for any club. The Northern Ireland midfielder has been linked with two English Championship clubs namely Stoke City and Welsh club Cardiff City in this summer’s transfer window.



Football Insider confirmed the interest of both Stoke City and Cardiff City in Corry Evans. He has been a target for the Potters since Michael O’Neill became their manager almost two years ago. Evans was a regular in the Northern Ireland starting XI while O’Neill was in charge of the team for several years. The midfielder has been linked with a move to Stoke City since the start of the winter transfer window last year.

Corry Evans was touted as a possible signing for Stoke City shortly after the Potters made O’Neill their manager. He was first linked with Stoke City in January 2020 but the Potters ended up with the transfer of fellow Northern Ireland midfielder Jordan Thompson rather than the 30-year-old player.

In a recent interview, Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbraytold the Belfast Telegraph that Evans won’t be short of suitors after the decision was made not to offer him a new deal. According to him, Corry Evans will find a new club at a good level. The Blackburn boss went on to say that the Northern Ireland midfielder has been unlucky with injuries in recent times. Corry Evans has missed a lot of minutes since Mowbraybecame manager and it might have played a part in the decision not to offer the experienced player a new deal.

For now, Evans remains without a club despite the interest from Cardiff City and Stoke City in the English Championship.
