Former Birmingham City defender and Sheffield United loanee David Edgar has just been snapped up by USL side Nashville SC.

The 42-cap Canada international played 19 times for Birmingham City (one goal/one assist) after joining the Blues from Premier League Burnley on a free transfer. The majority of his games for the Clarets (110) came in the Sky Bet Championship, but he didn’t really get a run-out at St Andrews.

In the Blues’ 2014/15 Championship campaign, Edgar only featured 16 times, scoring in a 2-2 draw against Ipswich in the third game of the season. He was loaned out to Huddersfield Town, playing at the Jonn Smiths Stadium in a spell that lasted a month from January 21 2015.

Another loan out followed the next season, Edgar spending the 2015/16 campaign at then League One side Sheffield United. During that campaign, where the Blades were blunted in an 11th-placed finish. During that campaign, Edgar scored in a 3-1 victory over Bradford City, as well as providing an assist in a 3-0 win over Chesterfield.

After returning to the Blues, he was granted a free transfer to MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps, here he made nine appearances before being let go at the turn of 2018 after he missed all of the 2017 MLS season through injury after being hit by a car.

Nashville coach Gary Smith said of his capture, “David is a very experienced centerback who offers real physical and central experience. He has played at a top level for his country and in his club career, and he is a good addition to our already strong backline.”
