When I read a similar news link not long ago, my first genuine thought was that we’d resigned him. But of course I was just being thick. And it seems like Burnley have only now agreed to pay Newcastle United for Canadian defender David Edgar.

According to Sky Sports, The Clarets will pay Newcastle an initial £300,000 for the 22-year-old, with a further six-figure payment payable based on appearances. It would appear we’ve also put in a ‘sell-on’ clause to enable us to make more of any future transfers, when he moves on.

Edgar jumped ship after relegation following the Aston Villa game, in which he was sent off in the remaining few minutes. We had offered him a contract in the summer but he rejected the terms and when Owen Coyle offered him the opportunity of Premiership foootball he signed a four-year deal, with a fee only now being agreed by tribunal.

Edgar has yet to even get amongst the first team squad for a league game since his move to Turf Moor. His solitary outing coming against Hartlepool in the Carling Cup, so perhaps with hindsight he might have been better sticking around. But considering the frugal nature of our current boars would you be willing to play for Sports Direct vouchers and a Pukka Pie bonus scheme?

N.B. I may have exagerrated on the last part…
