Black Cats' Edwards Linked With Owls

Sunderland's Trinidad and Tobago winger Carlos Edwards has been linked with a loan move to Wednesday according to local reports in the North East.

The jet-heeled wideman has failed to feature in any squad for Roy Keane's men this season and the Owls could well benefit from the Stadium of Light club loaning Edwards out to get regular first team football.

And Wednesday are said to be one of the club's leading the race for his signature, with Cardiff City another Championship club interested in his services.

'There has been interest in Carlos and I'll have a chat with him,' Keanr told the Sheilds Gazette.

Wednesday have already forged good links with the Black Cats after Keane allowed Graham Kavanagh to come on loan to S6 last season.

And with Wednesday already showing previous interest in the winger/right-back, they could well be lining up a bid to bolsted their ranks with the international.

Who's going to pay for this? We had a donation from a Mr A Turner?
I think this story is rubbish. We don't have a money to pay for it and even if we did we don't need another winger. Cover in defence is much more of a priority.
He can play right back, and is a very good one at that.
As Reading were ripping our defence to shreds and walzing through the weakest centre midfield i've ever seen, the first thing that sprung to mind was mmm... What we need is another winger!
a decent centre midfielder would be nice and preferably one who doesn't let the game pass him by.
it was only a couple of days ago people were praising oconnor and mcallister and our defense so dont completely flip. Will say we need an old head at the back they seemed to stop after gifting them the first 2 goals
Precisely.... we need someone at the back in the mold of Michael Johnson. Not him, but someone who will have a similar effect on the defence like he had last year, plus someone in centre midfield who is big, strong & can control the middle of the park. What we don't need right now is a winger, or a right back - unless McMahon will be going back next week.

good pont actually maybe its just keeping options open if boro recall mcmahon makes sense
If we dont put JJ up front we dont need ANOTHER bloody winger!
I said something along those lines last night Will and got slated for it.
Skeggy Owl
we need eleven players after last night
Right, don't panic. We were *****e last night and against wolves but this is a better team than last year. Yes our squad is too thin but look beyond this result towards saturday. Let's see how the team and manager react. Then we'll see what they're made of and what kind of season we're in for.
that was s***e by the way
Agree! Dont panic, we were capable of beating Watford well, that hasnt changed. Reading are the same team last night as the one that was in the premiership. This hopefully will be the kick in the ass, and come down to reality for Saturday. If we lose badly on Sat. then I may just start to panic. Anyone know anything about this meeting between Wednesdayite, Hully, Addey and Allen tonight at Hillsborough?
edwards is on 25k a week!! never going to happen
And you know this BFL because you are his personal BANKER ?
Skeggy Owl
exactlly what i expected from someone like you!!
come off it bfl that figures ridiculous though. 10k max hes sunderland reserves, even then the club that loans players often still pays a proportion of wages
laws needs to look at some defenders before wingers and strikers
No Way edwards is on £25k a week, I agree with Wesp £10k Max. Luton to Sunderland in the championship from around £2k to £25k, dont think so
Aston Owl
Could it be that the takeover is about to happen and they have said Brian Laws can start thinking about the sort of players and wages we can now afford? Just a thought. Sorry to bring the takeover thing back up.
laws has said tonight on bbc radio sheffield that we are not linked with this guy at all..yet another crap newspaper rumour!
so even at 10k a week you think you lot can afford that? all you lot need is a 20 goal a season man!!
Fancy lending us Beattie then bfl?
we already have 2 strikers capable of 20 goals a season,problem is they keep getting injured :-(
You can never have enough wingers/defenders/strikers/ delete as appropriate
Red Wimp
US Owls - sorry I ahve to disagree. I've really rated McMahon, thought he's been calm on the ball and decent at distributing it too. Don't know how he played on Tues and if that's what you're basing your judgement on but in the games I;ve seen him I've thought he's decent. not outstanding but decent for us. Anyone else got a view - I'm beginning to mistrust my judgement!
sorry but your strikers arnt capable of getting anywhere near 20 goals a season. dont worry you lads are doing great considering everything and the injuries.
suppose you could have beattie for beevers, spuur, wood, simek and 5m quid!! what you say johnnyw69??
Carlos Edwards is a good player with a good crossing ability, so should be a good signing.
