Birmingham in talks with former Burnley defender David Edgar



Birmingham City are in talks with former Burnley defender David Edgar, Sky Sports understands.

The Canadian international is available on a free transfer after being released by the Clarets at the end of the season.

Edgar was a part of the Burnley squad that won promotion to the Premier League last season.

The 27-year-old made 114 appearances for the Lancashire side after joining from Newcastle United in 2009, scoring four goals.

It is understood a number of Championship clubs were interested in Edgar but it appears the Blues are frontrunners to sign the defender.

Birmingham City boss Lee Clark has been busy in the transfer market this close season having already signed Grant Hall, Jonathan Grounds and MK Dons midfielder Stephen Gleeson today.

Born in Kitchener, Canada, Edgar was signed by Newcastle aged 14 where he progressed through the club’s academy to make his first team debut against Bolton Wanderers in December 2006.

He played 19 times for the Magpies, scoring two goals before leaving to join Burnley in the summer of 2009 for a reportedly tribunal set fee of £300,000.

Edgar had a short loan spell at Swansea City during the 2009/10 season making five appearances, scoring one goal.

The defender has 22 caps for Canada.
