Jonny Evans rejoins Northern Ireland training before Norway clash

Leicester City's Jonny Evans during the Premier League match between Leicester City and Watford FC at The King Power Stadium on December 4, 2019 in Leicester, United Kingdom.

Jonny Evans is back training with the Northern Ireland players at Windsor Park after missing the 1-1 draw in Romania due to "personal reasons".

Leicester defender Evans did not travel to Bucharest with the rest of the team as Ian Baraclough gained a point in his first game in charge since replacing Michael O'Neill in April.

With Evans back training, the 32-year-old could be set to feature in Northern Ireland's second Nations League match against Norway on Monday.

It is a defensive boost for Northern Ireland, who are already without Sunderland defender Tom Flanagan.

Flanagan withdrew last week as his wife is due to give birth, with Arsenal's 20-year-old defender Daniel Ballard called up in his place and making his senior debut in Friday's Nations League opener.

Meanwhile at Windsor Park, Jamal Lewis, subject of a bid from Newcastle, is also training and has not left the camp despite the developments.

Leeds' Stuart Dallas, who could make his Premier League debut against Liverpool next week.
