Peterborough United winger Gwion Edwards has been given permission to talk to an unnamed Sky Bet Championship club after a fee was agreed.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony tweeted confirming that Edwards has asked for a move away from the club, and said that he did not wish to travel with the squad for their pre-season tour of Portugal.

He also stated that a fee had been agreed, and Edwards was set to discuss personal terms with the unnamed club in the coming days.

Edwards has attracted attention from a number of Sky Bet Championship clubs, with Reading and Birmingham City reportedly interested, and despite the best efforts of MacAnthony and Posh boss Steve Evans, they were unable to tempt the former Crawley Town man to stay at the club.

Here is a look at MacAnthony’s tweets in full:

This news came less than an hour after Peterborough United announced the signing of Jason Cummings on a season long loan deal.

Of course, Peterborough United fans are bound to be gutted that Edwards is going to leave the club, as he had become a firm fan favourite at the ABAX Stadium, but MacAnthony confirmed that there was a replacement in mind for when Gwion Edwards leaves.

Peterborough United have been extremely busy so far this transfer window, bringing in 13 new players ahead of the Sky Bet League One season, but their main success is the fact that as it stands, Marcus Maddison and Jack Marriott are still currently Peterborough United players.
