There has been widespread controversy revolving around Ched Evans and his proposed return to professional football, however the Blades have allowed him to train with the club.

Evans, 25, was released from prison last month after serving half of his five-year sentence for raping a woman back in 2011.

It is unsure as to whether the Sky Bet League One side will offer him a contract, but for the time being he will be training with the Sheffield United players.

Around 157,000 people have signed a petition not to let Evans return to professional football.

Evans released a video statement to his own personal website and said: It is a rare and extraordinary privilege to be permitted to play professional football. It is my hope that I will be able to return,”

“If that is possible then I will do so with humility having learned a very painful lesson.

“I would like a second chance but I know not everyone would agree.”
