Representatives of Sheffield United have been in contact with their former centre-forward Ched Evans since his conviction for rape, the League One club acknowledged last night.

The development will fuel speculation that Evans, who continues to protest his innocence, could return to Bramall Lane if he is released later this year although a statement, issued to The Star, neither confirmed or denied whether that is the case.

“Sheffield United Football Club is aware of a number of news reports which have appeared recently in the media concerning former player Ched Evans,” it read. “The club can confirm that, as part of its ongoing policy of providing a duty of care to former employees and their families, it was in contact with Mr Evans subsequent to his conviction.
