Ched Evans has rejoined his former club Sheffield United.

Evans is a former Welsh international, who appeared for his country 13 times between 2008 and 2012, scoring one goal.

The striker enjoyed a lot of success during his previous spell at Bramall Lane, appearing over 100 times.

During his 103 games, he found the back of the net 42 times, before he was released in 2012.

Evans is a former Manchester City youth player, who struggled to break into the first team during his time there.

He left the club in 2009, before making the move to Sheffield United for a total of £3million.

His most recent club was Chesterfield, who he joined in the summer of June 2016.

Evans struggled to make an impact at the Proact Stadium, scoring just five goals in 25 games for the Spireites.

He was unable to prevent them from getting relegated from Sky Bet League One, as they finished rock bottom of the table.

But now, Evans will play Sky Bet Championship football at his former club Sheffield United, following their title-winning season in the third tier.

Journalist Rob Staton confirmed on his Twitter that Ched Evans had signed a three-year deal at Bramall Lane.

Speaking about the move, Evans said: “I am delighted to be back. I still feel I have plenty to prove in football both at club and international level.”

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder also spoke about the deal. Speaking to the official club website, he said: “The signing is just one element of the plans we have drawn-up for next season. We have done our homework on the player.”

“Ched comes to us with targets to achieve along the way. With a full pre-season with us we believe he can provide us with options up front and score goals.”
