The Welshman was one of five players whose deal was due to expire on June 30, all of which had the option for the club to extend for a further 12 months.

Edwards is the only one of those five players to have their option taken, with Cole Skuse handed a fresh contract while Will Keane, Jordan Roberts and Danny Rowe are all set to depart on June 30. However, the club have said they would be open to talking about new deals with those three once the impact of coronavirus on the world of football has become clearer.

The club had been keen to negotiate fresh terms with Edwards but, for now, have taken their option to extend by a further year.

Speaking on March 13, the day football was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, Edwards said: “I’m settled here and would like to stay. My ambition is to play again in the Championship and I know the club want to get back there as soon as they can too.

“There hasn’t been any talk yet about it. We’ve just been concentrating on the games and we’ll deal with the contract situation nearer the time. The club have the one-year option and I think they have until the third Saturday in May, or something like that, to decide if they want to trigger it.”
