22 year old Canadian central defender, David Edgar could be poised to leave relegated Newscastle and return to the Premier League with the Clarets if local Tyneside media reports are to be believed.
Edgar is understood to be unhappy with the terms of a new contract offer at St James's Park and it is also suggested that talks with Birmingham about a move has also stalled allowing Owen Coyle to move in and make an offer.
The Canadian Under 20 International prefers to play at centre back but can play at right back if required.
Edgar came through Newcastle's Academy after signing as a youth in 2001. He made his first team debut for Newcastle against Bolton Wanderers on Boxing Day 2006 and has made just 19 appearances for the club scoring a couple of goals.
Eddie Edgar, David's father was also a professional goalkeeper for Newcastle although played just one game before moving onto Hartlepool United before playing eventually for New York Cosmos. He married a Canadian and his son grew up in Kitchener, Ontario.
Curiously the Clarets seem to have been linked with a number of full-backs/central defenders recently, Bobo Balde being one only today. We also await to hear if Derby defender, Tyrone Mears will accept a move to Turf Moor after the two clubs had agreed a deal.
There also seems to be a strange competition with Birmingham for players at the moment including both today's rumours, Balde and now Edgar!
Surely we cant be after all three players can we? If we are and succeed, we will certainly have options in the back four more than we have ever had before!
