Sheffield United are in talks to sign Ched Evans for a second spell at the Blades for a rumoured £500,000.
Evans scored 7 goals in 29 games in all competitions for relegated Chesterfield in League One last season.
The 28 year-old scored 42 goals in 103 appearances in his first stint at the club between 2009-12.
In October 2016, Evans was found not guilty, following a retrial, of raping a 19-year-old woman in a hotel room in 2011 after serving two and a half years of an initial 5 year sentence.
The club almost signed the Wales international back last year but a petition with over 170,000 signatures tempted them to revoke the offer given to Evans. A similar feat happened just days later at Oldham amid fan and sponsorship pressure which led to the club pulling out of a deal .
Evans has 13 caps for Wales, scoring once.
