Dave Edwards waiting on contract talks with Wolves

Sport | Published:

Dave Edwards today admitted he still hasn't heard about a new contract as he saluted a "monumental effort" by Wolves.

The 28-year-old midfielder's deal expires in June and he is yet to be told what the club's plans are for him, along with fellow senior out-of-contract player Richard Stearman.

Edwards left the field to a standing ovation during Saturday's 3-0 win over Carlisle when he was replaced by James Henry after 65 minutes.

But the hard-running midfielder has played himself into favour with his most prolific season at the club after nine goals in just 22 starts for the League One champions, and the Wales international hopes his six-and-a-half year stay at Molineux hasn't come to an end.

"Hopefully it won't be the last time I pull on a Wolves shirt," said Edwards.

"Me personally, I haven't heard anything yet from the club. I really hope it's not the final time but if it is, what a great way to go out.

"What a great season – 103 points is just a monumental effort from everyone and that goes right from the staff to the players and the fans.

"To get a standing ovation and to hear them sing my name it meant a lot to me and my family.

"To win 3-0 and get the record number of points capped off a great season.


"Hopefully I'll be wearing the gold and black again but if not, I've had some great times here."

Edwards, who is one of four current Wolves players with Carl Ikeme, Stearman and George Elokobi who were part of the Championship title-winning squad of 2008-09 and the League One tabletopping side, is savouring this success more after successive relegations.

"It's right up there with winning the Championship for me," he said.

"I know people might think winning the Championship should be better but after what's happened in the last couple of years, this season we've shown a lot of guts and determination to come back.

"The city's motto of 'out of darkness cometh light' is exactly what's happened this season."
