Edwards MK Dons Talks Claim
Wednesday, 12th May 2021 11:17
Town winger Gwion Edwards is reported to have held talks with the MK Dons.
As reported on Monday, the Welshman is out of contract but with the Blues continuing discussions with the former Peterborough wideman regarding a new deal.
Now Football League World is reporting that Edwards, who was linked with Sunderland and Preston in April, has held talks with MK about potentially joining them this summer.
Edwards, 28, moved to Town from Posh for £700,000 in the summer of 2018. He has made 82 starts and 27 sub appearances for the Blues, scoring 14 times.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield are reported to be the frontrunners to sign ex-Blues striker Jordan Rhodes when he leaves Sheffield Wednesday this summer.
It’s reported that a deal which will see the 31-year-old return to the Terriers, another of his former clubs, is well advanced despite reported interest from the Blues and even a claim they have offered the Scotland international a contract.
His father Andy, Town’s one-time keeper-coach, is the striker’s agent and has been spotted at a number of recent Huddersfield matches, although he has also attended at least one recent Town game.

Surely we're a more attractive offer than that franchise?
|MattinLondon added 11:21 - May 12|
@BlueBlood90. Depends how badly we want to keep him and how badly MK want him.
|SaigonTractor added 11:23 - May 12|
I know he's dropped off this season but I thought he'd be able to aim higher than MK Dons at least.
|TimmyH added 11:25 - May 12|
Let him go...started last season well but not so at the end. If we keep him the majority of the starting midfield and attack will still be here and that was the major problem, so much for the demolition.
|MrTown added 11:29 - May 12|
Let him go, far too inconsistent. When he's good he's a good League 1 winger, when he is bad it is painful to watch.
More bad than good for me though.

Is Nolan staying or going anyone know??
|TractorCam added 11:32 - May 12|
He won't be a starter for us so would make sense for him to move on, especially at another club at this level.
|Orraman added 11:33 - May 12|
Very inconsistent. Woeful set pieces. I am sure PC can find better this summer. I have no problems with Rhodes going back to Huddersfield - decent poacher but not prolific. Look forward, not back.
|OwainG1992 added 11:33 - May 12|
Whilst on his day he's very good at this level, His day is not a common occurance.
Think its time to move forward.

No worries. Can do better. Struggles to cross the ball 90% of the time
|Sixto6 added 11:38 - May 12|
We need to be looking at wingers that can do it in the championship - not ones that sometimes do it in L1
I also think Downes will probably go, and I’d be happy to replace him with Callum Connelly & Lee Evans.
I’d also like to see Luke Garbutt back in at LB to compliment KVY on the right!
|budgieplucker added 11:38 - May 12|
I think there is no doubting his ability at this level and he showed some good performances in the Championship, however, Peterborough chairman reported that they let him go because he often missed games because of niggly injuries and his firm was erratic. I think that has continued at Ipswich and we are lucky if we get one good game in three out of him and arguably this season we have struggled to obtain that. Good footballer yes but very much part of the overall problem at Portman Road, consistently inconsistent. We must aim higher and a mire data driven approach surely would have excluded us from signing him and several of the other players that have found their way to Portman Road and the sick mans holiday camp!!!

Shows his ambition and self worth, I'd rather he went, we can do much better,
|Michael101 added 11:42 - May 12|
Maybe m.k are offering more. Money that us??
|Europablue added 11:46 - May 12|
If we wanted him we should have renewed his contract before the end of the season
|budgieplucker added 11:46 - May 12|
@sixto6 - very good shouts there, also remember that KVY played at left back often for Col U, so we should also be looking at a right back as well which will give us good cover if we have at least 3 decent fullbacks (in addition to Kenny), wouldn’t be surprised if Evans was courted to be new captain. Not sure if there is any chance of getting Morsey from Boro, who was Cooks captain at Macclesfield and Wigan, but would he want to come, give Jackson to Boro in part exchange as a bench player for them, and offer Morsey a better deal than he is on at Boro - that would then show some serious intent at trying to attract one or two Championship players and being prepared to deal in the transfer market rather than go for out of contracts for every position. Part exchange Holy for Dundee Keeper would be another good deal.

Stay or go I don’t really care. Once we get to June we will really start to see the changes in playing staff
|Welshblue72 added 11:56 - May 12|
Personally I don’t think you can blame him speaking to other clubs. If we wanted him to stay then an offer would have been on the table a long time ago. Best of luck with whatever he does. Hope he stays thou as a good old welsh boy like me 💙
|dubblue added 11:57 - May 12|
Let him go too inconsistent for a club with aspirations for the championship.
Rhodes would not be on the top of my list for a new striker
|meekreech added 12:03 - May 12|
I am prepared to take him there any time.
|RobITFC added 12:10 - May 12|
Two bits of goods news in one report.

I think some people are living in the distant past on here talking about part exchange deals. When was the last time we part exchanged a player somebody prove me wrong. I don't we will get rid of as many players as some people thought it just does not happen in football. Some of the present players will need to be kept on as squad men. Bishop for instance very good impact player to have on the bench as he rarely has a run of games due to his injury problems. Edwards is quite versatile and can play in a number of positions and always tracks back to help out his fullback. So it's not just about the first eleven. Hope im wrong but i don't think you can build a team over night as Bobby Robson found out when he came here and he got plenty of abuse from the fans.

No problem with Edwards leaving. Started the season well but did little in the previous two and far too inconsistent. Feel a tinge of sympathy as feel he is probably an old fashioned winger who likes to stays upfield in a 4-3-3 rather than tracking back in a 4-5-1. But his overall contribution to the team is negligible and would prefer we got someone else in who will offer more threat
