The 26 year old was refused the right for an appeal – but Bruce believes Evans’ case is up for appeal as the case and evidence is questionable.

The Tigers boss has backed Latics chairman Simon Corney for attempting to sign the Welsh footballer, stating that Corney was right to believe Evans should be given a second chance at playing.

Bruce told the BBC:

“I’m a big believer that if you have done your time, you’ve done your time. Everyone deserves a second chance.”

Evans is still without a club having been released early from his five-year prison sentence, but those who’ve so far showed an interest in signing him have been lambasted widely in the media.
