Hull City are considering a summer swoop for Ipswich Town winger Gwion Edwards.

The 26-year-old impressed for a relegated Ipswich this season in the Championship and could be rewarded with a summer move to the Tigers, according to HITC Sport.

Hull are in the hunt for some new signings this summer as they look to replace out-of-contract players such as Evandro, Fraizer Campbell and David Marshall. They are also expected to sell Jarrod Bowen and possibly Kamil Grosicki so need wide players like Edwards.

Edwards, who is a former Wales Under-21 international, joined Ipswich last summer from League One side Peterborough United for around £700,000. He has played 33 times in all competitions this season and has chipped in with six goals.

The Wales-born winger started his career with Aberystwyth Town before he was snapped up by Swansea City in 2007. He never made a senior appearance for the Swans but enjoyed loan spells at St Johnstone and Crawley Town.

Edwards left the Liberty Stadium on a permanent deal in 2014 to join Crawley. He spent two years with the Reds and scored 13 goals in 87 games which earned him a move to Peterborough.

He continued his impressive goal scoring form with the Posh and bagged 16 in 74 appearances for them prior to his move top Portman Road.

Edwards would be a decent signing for Hull this summer and has shown this season that he has got what it takes to play in the Championship.
