Sunderland take David Edgar on trial

Sunderland take David Edgar on trial

Sunderland have been one of the form teams in League One this season as they continue to assert their dominance on proceedings. 

The Black Cats are in a very promising position to secure promotion this season, but they do face an awful lot of competition from a number of other sides.

However, it appears as if the club are currently looking at a possible addition, as according to The Chronicle Live, Jack Ross has said that David Edgar will be on trial with the club next week.

Edgar is a free agent at the moment following his departure from Ottawa Fury, so the Black Cats are set to take him on trial ahead of a potential swoop for his services.

The 31-year-old Canada international defender has experience of playing in England, having featured for Newcastle, Burnley, Birmingham City, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United, so he could prove to be a real asset for the Wearside club as they chase down promotion.

Here’s what Ross had to say about the defender:

“I think we’re going to have a look at him next week. It’s a bit challenging at the moment because of the schedule and that’s why I was a bit reticent to commit last week.”


David Edgar, who has 42 caps for his national side Canada, has plenty of experience from playing in English football and is currently out of contract, so the Black Cats shouldn’t hesitate to swoop in for his services by offering him a contract if he impresses while on trial.

Indeed, with Jack Matthews, Donald Love and Denver Hume all suffering from injuries at this moment in time, it would do no harm if Ross was to welcome him to the club.
