Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth are eyeing up a move for Plymouth Argyle defender Ryan Edwards.

Alan Nixon tweeted: “PORTSMOUTH. Taking keen interest in Ryan Edwards at PLYMOUTH. Contract up in summer.”

The centre-back has been impressive for Plymouth Argyle since his arrival, but it hasn’t been easy for Ryan Edwards. Last season, he was 30 games into his first season with Plymouth Argyle when it unfortunately had to be cut short because of a testicular cancer diagnosis.

Ryan Edwards managed to beat the disease, getting the all-clear in April 2018 and has been impressive for the League One side ever since.

Ryan Edwards signed for Plymouth Argyle in 2017 after a compensation fee was agreed between Plymouth Argyle and Morecambe.

At Morecambe he won two Player of the Season awards in 2016-17 voted for by supporters and fellow pros.

On Saturday, Brett Pitman netted twice to help move them within two points of the League One automatic promotion places with a 3-2 win over struggling Wycombe Wanderers.

Whereas, Plymouth Argyle suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Charlton, goals scored by Lyle Taylor and an own goal by Niall Canavan.

Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams spoke to the club website about the defeat: “I thought we were very good in the first and we looked like the team in the play-off position.”

“For 45 minutes it was excellent. We took the game to them, stopped them playing out from the back and created a load of opportunities.”
