Relieved Wolves midfielder David Edwards is hoping he has won the toughest injury battle of his career.

Edwards ended a six-month struggle against a back problem with his first appearance since February in a reserves clash against Newcastle this week.

And now the 25-year-old is planning to be the 'new signing' Wolves declined to make on transfer deadline day this week.

Wolves fans last saw Edwards in a 4-0 Premier League defeat of Blackpool in February, but the upbeat report on his 'rehab' contributed to the club keeping its transfer powder dry this week.

He said: "It's been the longest time I've had out in my career. Before this one the longest I'd had was the three months I was out with an ankle injury a couple of seasons ago.

"It's been a hard six months because there were times when I thought I was nearly fit and there were others when I felt a million miles away.

"It's nice to hopefully come through the other side but now I've got work extra hard to keep myself fit and avoid future problems.

"It has been a frustrating time, especially the two or three times I thought I was close and then had another setback.

"I've got a good support team around me and have managed to come through it."
