Statement - 18th October 2014

18 October 2014

In a departure from its current policy of not commenting on speculative media coverage concerning the future of its former player Ched Evans, Sheffield United's co-Chairmen Kevin McCabe and Jim Phipps have decided to issue a brief, joint statement: "Sheffield United has become aware of speculative media coverage concerning the immediate future of its former player Ched Evans.


"An article in The Sun today (Saturday 18th October) that Sheffield United has offered a contract to former player Ched Evans is false and damaging to the Club. We have made a statement on this matter previously and the lack of credibility and substance from this latest media report does not warrant any expansion from previous comments apart from noting that we are continuing to deliberate on any long term decision about Ched Evans."


The Club offered no further comment.
