Blades Miss Out on Boro Winger

Sheffield United look set on missing out on Peterborough United winger Gwion Edwards , who looks set to join Ipswich Town.

Edwards, 25 was linked with a number of Championship clubs. Along with United and Ipswich the Welshman was linked with a move to Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers.

With just a year remaining on his London Road contract it seems as though the Posh have taken the decision to cash in and they have chosen to accept Ipswich Town’s offer.

Posh owner Darragh MacAnthony tweeted: “The disappointing news today is Gwion has asked for a move & didn’t want to come on pre-season tour due to Championship club who want to buy him. A fee has been agreed with them and he has permission to speak to them.

“Myself and manager gutted as we did our best to talk him round, but he is adamant about wanting to leave and play in the Championship as has been obvious for last couple of weeks.
