Shrewsbury Town boss Sam Ricketts hasn’t ruled out his side re-signing the experienced Dave Edwards, as per the Shropshire Star.

The midfielder is out of contract at Reading at the end of the season and could depart in the January transfer window. He expressed an interest in returning to Shrewsbury Town.

The League One side are now managed by his former Wolves and Wales teammate Sam Ricketts, which have fuelled further rumours that they could now reunite.

Ricketts, who recently left Wrexham to take charge of the Shrews, has said: “I think there’d always be a chance as he’s from the area.”

He has admitted that wages could become a stumbling block should a potential deal arise, “Edo’s in a bracket where he’s earned the right to earn what he earns, which is well out of our price range.”

Edwards hasn’t played for Reading this season due to a knee injury he picked up in pre-season. He joined the Royals in 2017 on a two-year deal from Wolves for a fee in the region of £1 million. He played 35 games in the last campaign in all competitions, scoring three goals.

The 32-year-old started his career at Shrewsbury and rose through the youth ranks there. He went onto play 137 games for them as a youngster before moving onto Luton Town in 2007.

Edwards was then snapped up by Wolves a year later and went onto play over 300 games for the Midlands side. Could the Wales international now go back to where it all started for him at Shrewsbury?
