Joe Edwards


#1

Deadline for him to sign a new contract passed on the 10th June - is he on his way? :neutral_face:


#2

Unless our contract offer his derisory (which it could be) I don’t understand why he would go. Very much loved, key part of the team and not many will take a gamble on his injury.


#3

rumours of a move to Blues


#4

Pretty sure he is/was still on holiday up until the other day. Someone on Facebook said he’s off to Birmingham :thinking:


#5

Disappointing :disappointed:


#6

Hadn’t heard the Blues link. Amazing how many teams are interested in our players considering our poor season.


#7

Absolutely.


#8

Good player, don’t think he’s championship standard though.

It was a bad injury so surely he’ll continue his rehab here regardless of contract?


#9

I think we need a bit if realism here , there’s a possibility he may never recover to last seasons standards after the injury he sustained (its a bad one).

So I cant for the life of me see another club offering a lucrative deal to a player with such an injury?? …


#10

He’s going to be out for half of next season and may never be the same player after his injury. It would be a big gamble to sign him. If Blues want him then he can go there for treatment and not clog up our meagre resources.


#11

Any guesses what’s happening here?

Weighing up his options would be mine?


#12

Shouldn’t matter at this point, he was given a deadline and doesn’t seem to have signed. If the rumours about Nathan Cameron are true perhaps he’ll be a replacement for JE?


#13

Cameron’s a defender so I doubt it. I still think he’ll sign to be honest, or has agreed to sign but it’ll officially go through when they return to training (isn’t that soon?).


#14

Ah, I thought he was a midfielder! I hope you’re right, would like to see Edwards and Dobson form a partnership in the middle.


#15

Isn’t he out until November?

Would imagine he’s been using the clubs facilities all summer for rehab so think he’ll sign on again.

No real rush.


#16

The rush will happen at the end of June when his contract expires and he stops getting paid.


#17

One year with an option for a further year. Sounds good to me.


#18

Very happy with that, I know it’s a cliche but he will be like a new signing when he returns - and a good one at that considering the quality he has! (thats if he can return to the form he was on).


#19

Good news.

One observation: none of the communications appear to specify in who’s favour (player or club) the one year option is.

Badeeea super Joey Edwards!
