Instead they decided to pay him a year’s salary as part of a deal which saw him sign with Fleetwood Town last week.
Ched — jailed for rape in 2012 then found not guilty in a retrial — spent last year on loan at the League One team. He had a year left at Sheffield and is expected to stay on £3,000 a week.
A source said: “Sheffield were keen for him to move on.” Both clubs declined to comment.
