His girlfriend Natasha Massey told Sky he was determined to clear his name.
"If Ched wasn't a professional footballer we wouldn't be having this conversation, because that was his job before he went to prison," she said.
"That's part of the whole rehabilitation process when you leave the prison and you go back to work. All Ched wants to do is go back to work, do the job that he loves, play football, score goals and then just come home and have a family life."
Evans has also launched a bid to have his conviction overturned.
Alan Smith, from the Sheffield United Supporters Club executive, told the broadcaster he believed most of the supporters would welcome back the striker.
Claiming he had been given assurances that Evans would be re-signed upon his release, he added: "He has served his time, he has served his sentence and we would have him back. Good players like that have got to carry on playing and if not for Sheffield United it would be for someone else, and we would regret that."
