New York Red Bulls continue their off-season moves with the potential of bringing in EFL Championship right back Tom Edwards. The move is rumored to be a loan deal for the English U-20 player.
Edwards had been on loan with the lower division side Fleetwood town but was recalled after just 12 games with the club. The player has reportedly been a target for the Red Bulls for quite some time and they hope to complete the deal in time for the start of the 2021 season which is slated for March.
Edwards made his debut for Stoke City in 2017 when the team was still in the English Premier League. Since then he played a significant amount of games for the club while they were in the Championship and then made a move to Fleetwood recently. Now, it appears that the club is looking for another loan and Red Bulls could be the destination.
The move makes sense for New York as they are still looking to restructure their defensive backline which has seen the departure of Tim Parker and the addition of Andres Reyes. Under new head coach Gerhard Struber, the team is being reorganized and a new look is expected for the upcoming season.
No confirmation as to when the club expects to complete the deal but the move continues a string of rumors that encircle the team during the January European transfer window.
