Celtic: Kyle Edwards update emerges

Celtic: Kyle Edwards update emerges - Celtic

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.

Ange Postecoglou reportedly gave Celtic the green light to sign Edwards in a cut-price deal and they were negotiating personal terms last week.

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.

Can you identify these forgotten Celtic loan signings?

The Verdict: No longer needed?

Since Celtic were discussing personal terms with Edwards, they have signed Liel Abada and Kyogo Furuhashi, so perhaps Edwards is no longer required at Parkhead.

Abada and Furuhashi can play on the wing, so Postecoglou now has the new signings, James Forrest, Mikey Johnston, Maryan Shved and Karamoko Dembele as wide options.

That could be more than enough for the new boss and it appears as if they may now miss out on Edwards.
