Ched Evans signed for Preston North End from Fleetwood Town initially on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 season, but he went on to sign a permanent contract until the summer of 2023.
The forward played a significant part for the rest of the campaign, featuring 21 times and scoring five goals along the way, with the best of the bunch being a superb left-footed volley in an away game against Millwall.
The Welsh international striker, who has 13 caps and two goals for his country, came through the ranks at Manchester City, before a highly-successful spell with Sheffield United.
Between 2009 and 2012, Evans made over 100 appearances, scoring almost 50 goals in that period.
In two spells with Fleetwood he scored 37 goals in less than 100 games before joining the Lilywhites.
