I wanted to remain a Blade - Evans

18-goal hit man Ched Evans has revealed that he is happy to remain a Sheffield United player following the recent passing of the January transfer window

The Welshman was under constant speculation last month in regards to his future at Bramall Lane, but the 23-year-old claims he always wanted to stay a Sheffield United player and is now eyeing promotion back to the Championship.

Evans said: "I'm feeling confident and I'm enjoying my football here at the moment. The whole squad and staff have got a good cohesion.

"We want to get promoted and that is the main feeling around the changing room.

"I had made my mind up that I was staying here and wasn't going anywhere. I am pleased to still be here and all I want now is a promotion medal."

With Evans' immediate future resolved he can now be focused on the task ahead: "I can now keep cracking on, keep putting the work in on the training pitch, and on matchdays hopefully I can keep my goalscoring run going."
