I was getting worried when we hadn't signed anybody, a left back would be great and if I'm greedy another centre back!

“I got an offer from Newcastle a couple of weeks ago, but to be honest my mind was on Burnley anyway,” said Edgar, who made 11 appearances last season, scoring one goal. “I love Newcastle - I have done since I was a little kid - so it was tough, but when it came to football there was no other option for me. At this point in my career I felt it was time to move on and the gaffer here was so enthusiastic about having me, the way he wants to play football and how he sees me playing, and it was just too good to turn down. I said to my friends and family that it’s good to be at a place you’re wanted, and the gaffer definitely made me feel like that"
