Manager Ian Holloway has today secured the permanent transfer of former loanee Carlos Edwards from Ipswich.

Having joined us from Ipswich late last season, Edwards made his debut in the 2-2 draw against Blackburn Rovers at the end of March as we started our unbeaten run that saw us safe from relegation from the league.

Edwards played eight times during his spell with us, and scored once – the winner against Wigan on April 8th, that moved us out of the bottom three spots.

Speaking to the official site he said that when he joined the club on loan initially he wasn’t really looking at the league table, he just wanted to come here and play, but once he was in the dressing room and amongst the group, as he said previously, he was confident we could avoid the drop and we did just that.

‘For me it was really exciting because we were playing good football and getting wins and draws every game, so I was enjoying myself. To stay up was great and now I’m delighted to be joining the club on a permanent basis and really looking forward to next season.’

Edwards has also apparently requested the No 44 shirt for next season.

‘This is the number I wore for ‘the great escape’ so I want to keep it.’

Let’s hope the number next season becomes more synonymous because Edwards has helped play his part in pushing us towards a play off battle or better.

The 35 year old has signed a 12 month deal.
