Edwards Linked With Sunderland and Preston
Wednesday, 7th Apr 2021 16:44
Blues winger Gwion Edwards is reportedly interesting Sunderland and Preston with his contract up in the summer.
According to Football Insider, the Black Cats and Lilywhites are both keen on the 28-year-old Welshman, who will be a free agent come the end of the campaign.
Town took the option of an additional year in Edwards’s contract last summer but there have been no talks about a new deal since then.
Speaking about the situation last week, he said: “While the fact that I’m going to be out of contract in three months might be at the back of my mind, it isn’t really something that I’m too worried about. My main concentration is on helping to push this team into the play-offs.
“Obviously, I’m curious about where I’m going to be next season, whether it’s here at Ipswich or elsewhere.
“It would be nice to know but, like I said, it’s not bothering me too much. I’m sure the club will sit down at the end of the season and talk to all the players who are going to be out of contract.”
Edwards is one of 26 players whose deals are up at the end of the season with a summer of great change anticipated even before confirmation of the takeover earlier today.

That’s one off the list and sorted with a new job.

If Cook sticks to his 4-3-2-1 system next season i can see Edwards being let go. We all know how Edwards can play when his in form.

I would like to thank Marcus for saving the club but i doubted him when he gave Magilton 12 million to get us promoted .Insread of signing for 3 or 4 top qualitypllayers he spent £750 on players wernt quite good enough

Don’t think we’ve ever seen the best GE has to give. ; has been willing and versatile but ,like many others, has not sparkled or imposed himself .
Replacement players will need to be more robust all round and physically more impressive .

Cheerio loser. Can’t keep possession, can’t pass piss most of the time, and rarely is 9n his game. No loss. ...Next!

Blackcats & Lilywhites interest, sort of sums up his grey man performances of late

The best of Hurst's signings by a long, long way. But that's saying something.

A winger who can't cross - sums up our current predicament.
|therein61 added 17:20 - Apr 7|
As with others another player who has not produced any decent consistent form he's been in the financially rewarding comfort zone.

You’ve got confused Sunderland - WE are not after him, he’s our player. 🙄
Stand down with the “interested too”.
|Ipswichbusiness added 17:23 - Apr 7|
I would offer a new contract.
He is a good winger/wing back at this level. No, he isn’t perfect, but do you really think that we are about to sign Jesse Lingard?
There are much more obvious candidates for the chop; Chambers and Skuse for a start.

I would keep Edwards along with KVY, Wolfie, judge and Norwood and ship rest out. We’re not going to be attracting top class players whilst still in league 1 so build a team around some senior players. Just my opinion thou. Hopefully new owners will loosen purse strings and give cook some money to build us a team

Let him go. Can't build a team around someone who's half hearted, uninspired and uninspiring. Another who's achieved nothing since he has been here and spends a lot of time injured.

He's pants, so good luck to who ever ends up with him,
|happybeingblue added 17:42 - Apr 7|
not sure why they would want an inconsistent injury prone player who only performs when the sun is out in august and sept!
|istanblue added 17:52 - Apr 7|
Edwards is one we should look to keep. He can play in Cook's 4-2-3-1 (preferably out on the left) and has looked decent at times.
|jas0999 added 17:53 - Apr 7|
Average League One player, also injury prone. Can’t see him staying.
|Lathers added 17:58 - Apr 7|
Played out of his skin away at Blackpool. Apart from that he lets the fans down game after game.
Only ones I’d keep for next season:-
