Edwards set to leave Villa
Rob Edwards
Aston Villa boss David O'Leary has told Wales international Rob Edwards he can leave the club if the price is right.

The 21-year-old full-back has had talks with O'Leary since returning from a three-month loan spell at Derby.

Edwards said: "I have had a chat with the gaffer and been told that they will let me go for a reasonable fee.

"I felt I did okay at Derby and was able to help them avoid relegation. But it does not seem that I have a future at Villa."

Villa are believed to want 500,000 for the youngster, who still has a year left on his contract, which could rule out a permanent move to Derby.

Edwards added: "I believe there are another couple of clubs interested, one from the Premiership and a big club in the First Division. But I know no more than that.

"I am disappointed but really do not know what is going to happen, hopefully it can be sorted out quickly."
