Celtic: Kyle Edwards transfer update emerges

Celtic: Kyle Edwards transfer update emerges - Celtic

Celtic have stepped up their plans to sign former West Brom winger Kyle Edwards this summer, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: 2020 links

Edwards, who is now a free agent after his Baggies deal expired on July 1, was linked with a move to Celtic last December.

The 23-year-old was wanted on loan by the Hoops back then, but the club’s only winter window addition was Everton’s Jonjoe Kenny.

Celtic were working on a cut-price deal for Edwards earlier this week, and there has now been a further development.

The Latest: Source shares update

According to Football Insider, who have been informed by a Celtic source, the Hoops are now negotiating personal terms with Edwards. The Parkhead club are set to offer the winger a contract, with Ange Postecoglou having given the thumbs-up to a swoop for the free agent.

Should Edwards move to Glasgow, Celtic would have to pay West Brom around £300,000 in compensation– a third of his Transfermarkt valuation.

The Verdict: Worth a gamble

Celtic are aware of rival interest from a number of English clubs, so a cut-price move appears to be worth a gamble.

The Hoops could do with wide additions following Mohamed Elyounoussi’s return to Southampton, leaving them with just James Forrest, Mikey Johnston and Maryan Shved as wingers, with Edwards capable of playing on either side.

He showed flashes of brilliance for West Brom last season and is described as a very strong dribbler by WhoScored, so his direct approach could come in handy during Postecoglou’s first season in charge.
