Midfielder Dave Edwards put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Reading in the summer of 2017, joining from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
His career at Wanderers began with promotion to the Premier League in his first full season in black and gold and he enjoyed three years playing amongst England’s elite in the top tier.
Before becoming a Wolves stalwart, Edwards had risen to prominence with Shrewsbury Town before a season at cash-strapped Luton Town led to a move to Molineux in January 2008. And, five days after the ink had dried on his contract at the club, Edwards made a goalscoring debut in a 2-0 win at Scunthorpe United.
Having made his Wales senior debut in a 2-2 draw against Paul McShane’s Republic of Ireland in Cardiff back in November 2007, Edwards has gone on to earn 39 caps for his country, scoring three times. He opted to retire from the international game in March 2018.
His maiden campaign saw him feature for the Royals on 35 occasions, finding the net against Millwall, Barnsley and Sunderland.
