Bristol Rovers are poised to boost their attacking options by landing him today.
Evans, who is 22-years-old, is a free agent after being released by German side Paderborn at the end of last season.
He spent the second-half of the past campaign on loan in League One with Crewe Alexandra.
Career to date
The Kirby-born man rose up through the youth ranks at Everton but never made a senior appearance for the Premier League outfit.
The ex-England youth international had loan spells away at Morecambe and Blackpool to gain some experience before Paderborn swooped to sign him.
He ended up playing eight times during his time in Germany before he was allowed to return to the UK with Crewe in January.
Evans is now moving back on a permanent basis with Bristol Rovers swooping in.
This deal could prove to be a shrewd one for Bristol Rovers.
That have had a poor start to life back in League Two and are in need of more quality in their ranks.
Evans will be a decent coup for a team in the fourth tier and has a point to prove in this country.
