Port Vale winger Paul Edwards, has expressed that he is desperate to earn a new contract at Vale Park with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.
A 2006 signing from Oldham, Edwards has been troubled with a string of injuries in his time at the Staffordshire club, but made a return to the first-team last week following an absence since November.
"My contract is up the summer and I need to play games to be in the manager's thoughts," he told BBC Radio Stoke.
"I want to play every game between now and the end of the season and nail down my place of the left side."
"I was out for a while, but the ankle injury I had is behind me and it's good to be back," the 29-year-old added.
