New Seasiders deal for Edwards

19 July 2010 06:25
Blackpool have handed a new one-year contract to defender Rob Edwards. Edwards, who joined the Seasiders from Wolves two years ago, was out of contract following the club's promotion to the Premier League, but has now put pen to paper on a new 12-month deal. "There has never been any doubt that I wanted to stay and I'm just glad that it's all sorted now," he told the club's official website. "I love working here with the lads and the manager as well. "I thoroughly enjoyed last year and I want to be part of it again this year and hopefully even more so. "Being involved in the Premier League is the ultimate for any player and that was a big pull as well in me staying." Meanwhile, manager Ian Holloway is closing in on the signing of free agent Israeli defender Dekel Keinan as he looks to put together a team capable of competing in the top-flight.
