Maltese side Hibernians have offered Ched Evans a route back into football by offering him a contract until the end of the season. Evans was released from prison in October having served two and a half years of a five year sentence after being found guilty of raping a women in 2011.

His former club Sheffield United retracted an offer for him to train with the club after strong opposition and the likes of Tranmere and Oldham have have also passed up the chance to sign him.


Now Hibernians in Malta - 15 points clear at the top of table - have confirmed they wish to sign Evans. Club vice president Stephen Vaughan said:

“We are looking to secure the services of a top striker and Ched fits the bill.

“We’ve spoken to his agent and have offered a deal from now until the end of the season.”

Vaughan you might recall, was the first ever owner forced to reduce his shareholding because he was the first person to fail the FA's 'fit and proper person' test while he was owner of Chester City.


Scottish side Hibernian FC had to clarify that they had not offered Evans a contract last night:

Trying to resist saying 'You couldn't make this stuff up' here.
