According to The News, Pompey have emphatically denied a move for the transfer-listed marksman who spent last season on loan at Fleetwood Town.

Rumours had been circling that the south coast club could be interested in Evans, who netted 17 goals in 39 league matches for Joey Barton’s side last season.

But it looks like that’s just speculation as the 30-year-old remains on the books at the Blades.
