‘Fantastic’ talent: Charlton Athletic defeats Barnsley and Bristol Rovers in the near future

Josh Edwards Celebrates 150 Appearances | Dunfermline Athletic Football  Club -

Charlton Athletic are poised to beat League One rivals Bristol Rovers and Blackpool to bring promising Dunfermline defender Josh Edwards to The Valley in a significant coup for the London outfit.

The South London Press reports that the Addicks hope to have tied up a deal for the 23-year-old ‘in the coming days’ with negotiations currently focused on a serious Addicks bid, believed to be just short of the £1 million price tag rumoured to have been placed on the defender.

With one year remaining on his deal with the Scottish Championship team, Edwards has been linked to Barnsley and other League One clubs in recent weeks. The adaptable defender can play both center defense and on the wing, however his primary position is left back.

Charlton Athletic, under manager Nathan Jones, would have demonstrated their resolve by defeating opponents in the third division to acquire the star. This would be the player’s first transfer window at the club. In order to give him more influence over the club’s transfer policy, the Welshman was named manager instead than head coach.

In January, Barnsley made a proposal, but Dunfermline told Edwards they would approve a trade when the

The timing was perfect. The defender, who came from Airdrie to join the Fifers in 2019, is an important member of the team.

James McPake, the manager of Dunfermline, stated in February: “A bid was turned down by the club, but that was concerning until [last Thursday’s transfer deadline].” We are aware of his importance, and the club—CEO David Cook and the board—are excellent at recognizing that. For them, it was an easy decision.

“Obviously, if a ridiculous bid is received, it will be considered – but ridiculous is a high bid. Given Josh’s value to the team and his abilities, the club rejected it, demonstrating their genuine intent. “KEEPING JASHON WAS VERY IMPORTANT, FOR WHAT HE DOES IN THE TEAM. He could get injured, that’s just the nature of football, but a player with his profile is really hard to find. And the way he plays that left-wing/left wing-back role, I don’t see many players like that out there. “It was very important we kept Josh. He’s playing at a really high level. I’ve told him that if he continues doing this  what he’s doing for us, and since he’s doing everything correctly, he’ll go on to have an amazing career.”
