Swansea City have reportedly had a bid rejected by Peterborough United for defender Ronnie Edwards, according to journalist Tom Coleman.
The 20-year-old has been the subject of fierce transfer interest all summer, following his impressive performances for the League One side last season, despite their failure to gain promotion.
Who is Ronnie Edwards?
The defender joined Peterborough in 2020, arriving from National League side Barnet and became an instant hit with supporters of the League One side.
To date, Edwards has made 93 appearances for the League One side, picking up two assists and earning eight caps for England’s U20s.
Swansea’s pursuit of a defender
Swansea City boss Michael Duff has made it clear that he wants another defender to join the Championship club before the transfer window closes at 11 p.m.
Chelsea defender Bashir Humphreys has been heavily linked with a move, whilst Ronnie Edwards, Jake Bidwell and Kristian Pedersen have all also been mentioned as possible recruits for the Welsh side.
However, it remains to be seen just how many signings the Swans make before the window shuts, but it appears as though there could be more than one for Michael Duff’s men.
What’s been said?
Journalist Tom Coleman posted the update on Twitter stating…
‘Have also had a bid turned down for Ronnie Edwards. Not sure if they’ll go back’
Ronnie Edwards is possibly one of the most in-demand League One players that hasn’t managed to get a transfer so far this summer and I could think of many Championship clubs that could benefit by having him.
We don’t currently know what the asking price is, which could be a major factor in why he’s still with the League One side but it remains to be seen whether he will still be a Posh player at 11 p.m.
