Wolves' David Edwards playing for Euro 2016

Sport | Published:

Wolves midfielder David Edwards has revealed how he has been keeping his family waiting on their holiday plans as he fights for a place in Wales' Euro 2016 squad.

The 30-year-old will be doing everything he can to be on the plane to France once Wolves' season is over.

Edwards was ruled out for months after suffering a broken metatarsal in January but returned to action at Milton Keynes Dons, a couple of weeks earlier than initially expected.

It means his wife and young children are being forced to be patient when it comes to making their summer holiday plans, as he tries to make up for lost time to book his trip to France in the summer.

Edwards said: "The wife and kids are having to wait on the holiday front. The passport is all there. It's the first time in a while I hope I don't get any holidays and I can spend some more time playing football."

Edwards, capped 31 times by Wales, said he and the club have been in contact with Wales boss Chris Coleman and his medical team during his enforced lay-off.

He added: "I spoke to the manager during my rehab. He rang up to check how I was doing which was nice and the physios and doctors have kept in contact.

"But since I've been back playing it's just about me getting minutes under my belt, trying to score some goals and get in some good form.

"If I can do that in the remaining three games then hopefully I've done everything my end to deserve a space in the squad.


"I'm just hoping that I can do enough in that time because it would be a dream come true."

Edwards, however, will first focus on trying to help Wolves end their season on a high, after a mixed bag of results.

He said: "We can be brilliant and score goals and vice versa, at other times we can't keep a clean sheet.

"We've got good players in the team, we've got good staff and a good manager. We really need to finish the season well to give us good momentum going into next season."
