Everton manager Roberto Martinez confirmed that the team is not trying to sign Evans despite rumors suggesting otherwise, according to Sky Sports.

Martinez said there was no truth to the transfer rumors reported earlier this week. Everton dismissed two center defenders this summer, but doesn't appear to have Evans in their sights.

Evans is expected to transfer to Everton for an 8 million fee, The Guardian reports.

Evans has fallen out of favor with manager Louis van Gaal, who has numerous centerbacks ahead of Evans on the depth chart. It's unclear if Evans will start at Goodison Park, as Phil Jagielka and John Stones appeared to have their spots locked in.

Manchester United have yet to begin discussions about a new contract with Evans indicating he may leave the club this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Evans did not have the most consistent season and started just 14 matches in the season. His current contract expires in a year, and no new discussions have begun about a new one. He would likely be a player United sells this summer versus being allowed to leave on a free transfer, if no discussions take place.

Evans is eligible to play Sunday against Everton after serving a six-match suspension for spitting at Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse.

With Phil Jones out with an ankle injury, Evans could get a chance to start, though youngster Paddy McNair did play well in place of Jones last weekend against Chelsea.

Evans' appeal of his FA charge for spitting at Newcastle's Papiss Cisse on Wednesday was denied, and he has been suspended for six games.

Evans was getting consistent playing time while fit, though United have plenty of replacements. He also wasn't a great fantasy contributor outside of clean sheets, making him a fairly weak option.

Evans was charged by the FA on Thursday after being caught on video spitting at Newcastle's Papiss Cisse during Wednesday's match.

Cisse was also charged for returning the spit-fire, and each player is facing a suspension if their appeals, should they submit them, are denied.

Evans said that Manchester United is not playing the style of attractive football manager Louis van Gaal has been working on, according to the Daily Mail.

Evans said he thinks the players know they could be playing better, and that Van Gaal wants the team to be playing a more attractive style. Despite being third in the table, United has endured criticism recently over their style of play.

Evans had one tackle, two interceptions and two clearances during Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Evans has started back-to-back matches for United now that he's back to full fitness, and he's got a decent shot at his second clean sheet in three matches on Boxing Day against Newcastle.
