David Edgar is going back to Swansea. Looks like Burnley's new manager, like Burnley's old manager, has decided that the best place for the Canadian centre-back is, well, Wales. Edgar has been subject to a juuust-before-the-transfer-deadline loan to Championship promotion-hopefuls Swansea City for the remainder of the season (pending league approval).
It's a good move for Edgar on a couple of fronts: as we've already discussed ad nauseum, he wasn't gettin' no love at Burnley; he enjoyed a more-or-less successful loan spell at Swansea City last year (see the video below); and Swansea are currently sitting in fourth in the Championship, which makes them a more attractive option than 10th place Burnley.
Edgar scored one goal in five appearances for the Swans last year after his March loan to the Welsh side. His first game could be the heated Wales derby against Cardiff City on February 6th. It's sure to be a heated match, with the clubs currently level on points. How will the Kitchener, Ont., native hold up against Craig Bellamy?
