According to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Bolton Wanderers are interested in a loan deal for Sheffield United striker, Ched Evans.

Former Manchester City striker Ched Evans only rejoined Sheffield United last Summer, after a season with Chesterfield, the club who offered him a chance back in football.

Evans hasn’t played for United since September, having had surgery to try and cure a long standing ankle complaint.

Evans scored recently for Sheffield United’s U23 side against Wanderers, and is expected to continue his first team return in an U23 game against Ipswich Town this week.

Ched Evans is a proven goalscorer, having scored 65 goals in 193 games during his career. Saying that, since his return to football, Evans hasn't exactly set the world alight. Whether or not United would let him leave on loan remains to be seen.

Nixon also stated in his tweet that Gary Madine is after a new deal, which is understandable. He’s arguably the most important player at the club, so let’s hope his demands aren’t out of the club’s reach.

Do you think Ched Evans would be a good signing for Wanderers? Let us know in the comments box below.
