James Vaughan was a reliable goalscorer in the Championship with Huddersfield Town - and Sheffield United should consider giving him a second chance.
The Villa supremo says they are not interested in the Welshman.
Chesterfield striker Evans, who was cleared of sexual assault on Friday, is a reported target for Aston Villa.
The dilemma is apparent. On 20th April, 2012, Ched Evans, then 23, was convicted of rape at Caernarfon Crown Court and sentenced to 5 years in prison. At the time, he was enjoying a successful spell at Sheffield United, having scored 35 goals during the 2011–12 season.
Sheffield United have confirmed that convicted rapist Ched Evans is to train with the club after a request from the Players' Union.
Sheffield United have had discussions over re-signing Ched Evans, who has been released from gaol.
