Edgar is keen to build on his recent run of games in the side

Newcastle United defender David Edgar believes he needs to bulk up if he is to compete in the Premier League.

The Canadian centre-back was given a tough test by West Ham's England striker Dean Ashton and hopes to build on the experience in the coming games.

"I'm playing against England internationals who are big strong lads," he told BBC Radio Newcastle.

"I've got to get bigger and be able to compete with them, but it's a learning curve and I'm excited to be playing."
