Bournemouth are trying to hijack Celtic’s attempts of signing former West Brom man Kyle Edwards, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Edwards talks
Edwards is currently a free agent after his deal at The Hawthorns expired earlier this month.
The wide man emerged as a target for the Hoops, who opened talks with the 23-year-old following his Baggies release.
However, reports have since gone cold, with Edwards now on trial at Championship side Reading.

The Latest: Source shares update
According to Football Insider, who were informed by a Bournemouth source, the Cherries have now made their move for the winger.
Bournemouth’s interest is reportedly a threat to Celtic’s hopes of singing Edwards, who was described as ‘unbelievable’ by West Brom midfielder Romaine Sawyers.
The report confirms Edwards is currently with Reading, however, they are not the favourites to sign the winger.
The Verdict: No longer needed?
That could be more than enough for the new boss and it appears as if they may now miss out on Edwards.
