Boss on Evans move

17 May 2017

Chris Wilder is looking forward to working with Ched Evans, after the striker returned to Bramall Lane earlier this month.

Speaking after Evans penned a three-year deal with the club, after United agreed an undisclosed fee with Chesterfield for his services, Wilder insists he wasn't influenced in bringing the Welshman back to S2.

He remarked: "I see a hungry, determined footballer who wants to do well and has unfinished business at this club.

"It's ultimately my decision because I wouldn't be at this football club if I was being told to sign certain players and that's a fact.

"Myself and the coaching staff are out there watching a lot of games between us and working within a budget this move represent value for money in terms of the deal with Chesterfield and the contract Ched's been given."

The Blades boss added: "Ched's got something to prove and I like that fact, he wants to come here and do well and that excites me.

"I've spoken at length with Ched and although the proof will be in the pudding, he impressed me with his attitude in our conversations."
