Everton fans react on Twitter to Jonny Evans for Seamus Coleman swap rumours

Manchester United have been linked with offering Jonny Evans in exchange for Everton's Seamus Coleman. But are the Toffees really likely to be tempted?

Manchester United are interested in offering Jonny Evans in part-exchange for Everton's Seamus Coleman, report The Star.

The Red Devils' re-emerging interest in Coleman was reported earlier this week, with The Mail claiming he is top of manager Louis van Gaal's wishlist for a new right-back.

With Everton holding out to keep hold of Coleman despite previous mooted interest in the Irish international, it's hard to imagine Jonny Evans being thrown into the mix would particularly sway the Toffees.

The Sun reported days ago that Everton were likely to resist offers, despite United being said to be preparing an offer of around £20 million for the defender.

Centre-back Jonny Evans is valued at a far lower amount, less than half of the proposed fee, and fell out of favour at United last season.

The Northern Ireland international, 27, made only 14 Premier League appearances last season, and has only one year remaining on his contract.

Everton fans have largely reacted negatively to the reports, with one fan even claiming he would give up on football if the club agreed such a deal.

Here is a look at what supporters had to say via Twitter...
