Hibernians, who are currently perched at the top of the Maltese top flight, have revealed they made an approach the the former Sheffield United frontman to sign a six-month contract.

“We are looking for a top striker and Ched fits the bill,” vice-president Stephen Vaughan said.

“We’ve spoken to his agent and have offered a deal from now until the end of the season,” the former Chester City owner added.

The 26-year-old was released from prison in October after serving half of his five-year sentence for being convicted of raping a woman in a hotel room in 2011.

He had looked set for a return to Sheffield United, who had been allowing him to use their facilities to train in, but pressure from fans as well as a number of high profile backers forced the club to shelve those plans.

Since then Tranmere, Oldham and Hartlepool have all ruled out deals.
