Sky Sports say Port Vale are one of four Football League clubs interested in signing a young Swansea City winger.
This feature contains rumour and speculation. All of these rumours should be treated as unconfirmed gossip until any move is officially announced by the club itself. We make no apologies for publishing some rumour and gossip (after all, even the state broadcaster, the BBC, publishes a daily Football Gossip column) but we’d just like to reiterate that this feature should not be treated too seriously.
Vale are in the market for a winger following the departure of Jennison Myrie-Williams and the Sentinel newspaper has speculated that a deal could be done in the next few days.
On Tuesday, the Sky Sports Transfer Centre linked Gwion Williams with the club.
Edwards enjoyed a successful loan spell at Crawley last season, where according to reports he “impressed fans and the manager alike with his energy and intelligent crosses.”
However, earlier in the summer Crawley boss John Gregory seemed to rule out anything other than another loan bid for the Welsh winger, telling the Crawley News that “if we wanted to go and buy a player of that quality it would be at least half a million.”
If Sky are to believed, it could be that Edwards is available for considerably less than Gergory’s valuation. One thing that Vale have in their favour is that coach George Foster has recently joined the Swans from Vale Park. Could it be that Foster will recommend the Valiants to Edwards or is it that this move is part of the deal that saw Foster move clubs?
