|No Comment From Jewell on Edu Speculation|
Friday, 10th Aug 2012 12:10
Blues boss Paul Jewell has refused to comment on reports that Town are targeting exiting Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu. The 26-year-old is on his way out of Ibrox following their recent demotions to Scottish League Division Three.
The Blues are understood to have spoken to the US international, who is all but certain to move on before the transfer window closes.
Jewell said: “We are interested in a midfield player but I don’t want to comment on speculation because he’s a Rangers player.”
Yesterday, Rangers manager Ally McCoist said he was resigned to US international Edu and Alejandro Bedoya departing: “It looks like Maurice and Alejandro will be leaving."
Californian Edu played with the Maryland Terrapins and Toronto FC before moving to the Glasgow giants in 2008 for a fee of £2.6 million. Since then the 6ft tall midfielder has made 102 starts and 21 sub appearances for Rangers.
Meanwhile, confirmation regarding midfielder Jimmy Bullard's expected Town exit is now unlikely until early next week.

Please let this one be true, Edu is an awesome player!

Get him on less than 15k per week and we have found our Bullard-replacement... who will actually want to play football!

Alex, I was getting worried. You hadn't posted that in a while, it's like you have Ipswich tourettes or something, randomly shouting out how good we are lol

Now this is the player we could do with!

I hate Rangers, but would be so happy with this signing, but of quality in the midfield. From what I hear, he has a hell of an engine on him too! Be happy to replace him with Bullard and Peters. Plus Kouroma signing and a right-sided centre half and a target man!

'Ipswich tourettes' - brilliant!

Neva heard of him but He looks good.
|Special_A added 12:34 - Aug 10|
He is too good for us!

Would be a great signing. Why cant we grt the jimmy issue sorted today? We love dragging things out thats for sure.
|alliedaz added 12:38 - Aug 10|
were already made the mistake by saying we are interested in this player now watch all the other teams come in and take him away frm us
|itfcjames added 12:41 - Aug 10|
We don't need another centre midfield player for the love of god! Great player, but who are you going to kick out, Hyam, Luongo or Martin?!

As mouthwatering as this all sounds , Id say it is likely to be an utter pipe dream. Since when will Town be able to compete for such a player , when we cant even secure up and coming players like Ward,or more established players like Davies .

If this goes through it will undoubtedly be the championship signing of the summer. Luongo in his current form and edu would be a awesome partnership. I wait in anticipation..
|Michael11 added 12:51 - Aug 10|
WOW!! This would be our best signing for a very long time, can't see it happening though, come on PJ get him in!
|daniel9624 added 12:56 - Aug 10|
Rangers must have leaked this info. It would make no sense for it to come from our end. Either that or his agent has let this into the public domain to up interest. Hope this happens, but can see a Prem team coming in for him.
|casanovacrow added 12:57 - Aug 10|
Good player? yes
Do we need him? no, wouldn't drop what we have in the middle at the moment and Drury would be next in line for a place
Could the wages be better used elsewhere? Most definitely
|Keaneish added 13:24 - Aug 10|
He's mustard. Definitely.
