Ipswich Town winger Gwion Edwards has been called up to the Wales squad, as per their official club website.

The 25-year-old has impressed in the Championship for the Tractor Boys since making his summer switch from League One side Peterborough United and has been rewarded with a call-up to the Wales squad.

Ryan Giggs’ side face the Republic of Ireland in the UEFA Nations League in Dublin on Tuesday evening and Edwards has been added to the former Manchester United winger’s options.

Edwards has previously represented Wales at Under-19 and Under-21 level and has been called up to the senior squad before in October 2014 but didn’t play. Therefore, he will be looking for his first cap this time around.

The tricky winger started his career with spells as a youngster at Aberystwyth Town and Cardiff City before he was snapped up by Swansea City in 2007. Edwards never played for the Swans’ first-team but enjoyed loan spells at St Johnstone and Crawley Town.

Crawley then signed Edwards on a permanent deal in 2014 and he scored a combined 13 goals for them in his two years at the club. This attracted the attention of Peterborough who swooped to sign him in 2016.

Edwards was a key player for the Posh in the third tier in his two seasons at London Road but got his chance to play in the Championship this summer when Ipswich forked out £700,000 to sign him.

It has turned out to be an inspired piece of business by Paul Hurst’s side and they now have an international winger in their ranks with Edwards looking to force his way into Wales’ starting XI for Tuesday.
