Edgar Hopes To Play In Sunday's Derby vs Cardiff

Edgar Hopes To Play In Sunday's Derby vs Cardiff

New loan signing David Edgar says he's hoping to be involved in Sunday's derby match against Cardiff City at the Liberty Stadium.

The Burnley defender told the Evening Post that he loved his loan spell with the Swans last season and is delighted to be back in South Wales.

The 23 year-old gives manager Brendan Rodgers some much-needed defensive cover with both captain Garry Monk and Neil Taylor sidelined with injuries.

Edgar wasn't available for yesterday's 2-0 win at Bristol City, and he's most likely to be named amongst the substitutes on Sunday:

'I loved it down at Swansea when I came on loan last season and I'm delighted to be back,'

'It was unfortunate that nothing happened with Swansea at the end of last season after my loan spell ended.

'But I have kept in touch with a few of the boys and I've kept an eye on their results.

'They are having a great season and it's great for me to be joining them.

'To make my debut in the derby would be fantastic.

'I had an opportunity to play in it last season and, although the result didn't go our way, the atmosphere was special.

'If I get another chance to face Cardiff, that will be great.

'Coming to a club who are chasing promotion to the Premier League is a massive opportunity for me, so hopefully I can play a part.'
