Evans had previously been at Leicester, but was released at the end of the 2022/23 season.

He has now sealed a permanent return to United, for whom he made 198 appearances during his previous stint.

Speaking to the club’s website, the 35-year-old said: “I am delighted to join Manchester United, a place which has always felt like home.

“I’ve really enjoyed working under the manager and his coaching staff since the start of pre-season, and I’m looking forward to helping this group achieve success together at this fantastic football club.”

United’s football director John Murtough added: “Jonny is a winner who has experienced everything in the game.

“These characteristics are invaluable to the culture that we’re building here.

“His attitude and work ethic are second to none and Erik [Ten Hag] and the coaching staff know he’s someone they can rely on whenever needed this season.

“We all welcome Jonny back and hope he can add further achievements to the success he has already enjoyed with the club.”
