On loan Sheffield United defender David Edgar hopes to remain at Bramall Lane on a permanent basis, according to The Sheffield Star.

The 28 year old Canadian international signed for The Blades in August on a season long loan deal but the defender is happy with life in South Yorkshire and would like to make the deal permanent.

Edgar has impressed Manager Nigel Adkins during his time at Bramall Lane and was an unlikely scorer in the recent 3-1 derby victory over Yorkshire rivals Bradford City.

Edgar is a product of Newcastle United’s academy and made 23 senior appearances for The Magpies scoring twice during his time on Tyneside.

The defender moved on to Burnley in a bid to seek regular first team football and made 114 appearances for The Clarets during a 5 year spell at Turf Moor in which he also spent a short time on loan at Swansea City.

Edgar made the move to Birmingham City 18 months ago but has fell out of favour under new Blues Manager Gary Rowett prompting loan moves to Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United.

The Canadian is multi-talented and was a long distance runner and ice hockey player as a youngster before solely focussing on his professional football career.

Blades Manager Nigel Adkins is looking to bolster his squad this month with an aim to push his side into a League 1 Play Off place after falling short of the fans’ expectancy this season.
