 Edwards latest
Topic Originator: GJS93  
Date:   Thu 23 May 11:02

from the Daily Record

"Dunfermline Athletic are bracing themselves for a string of English bids for Josh Edwards.

Charlton Athletic, Bristol Rovers and Barnsley all want to sign the Pars defender.

The Fifers are set to net a six figure fee for Edwards.

The English League One trio are all keen to try and thrash out a deal for when the transfer window opens.

Dunfermline triggered an extension that will keep him at East End Park for next season.

It protects the Pars financially and they are likely to sell in the summer rather than run the risk of losing him on a free transfer this time next year."

Best of luck to him if he goes. He has been a great servant to the club.

We will need two left backs then if he does go…..Surely Fenton was worth a shout at least for the jersey….management obviously thought otherwise..

I have a funny feeling he may stay another season. But if he goes he will be a big miss without question. He`s been thee guaranteed name on our teamsheet for what feels like forever. Let`s see how this pans out. I`m confident a replacement has been lined up if he is to go.

It would be a shame to see him leave but think we`ve known for a while he`s going at some point. Hopefully a decent offer comes in and it`s structured in a way that allows McPake to strengthen now.

There are quite a few very good left backs in our league.

Harry Milne at Patrick I thought looked good, particularly going forward in the playoff games.

Cameron Harper at ICT has looked decent against us and the stats possibly back up his quality. His side has the 2nd fewest goals conceded, and he personally has 12 goal involvements this season.

Mason Hancock, more of a left sided centre back, but has been excellent against us this season, particularly in the game in March at east end where we barely managed a clear chance and lost 2-0.

Cameron Harper and Lewis Strapp both out of contract, Morton already offered reduced terms to Strapp which he has rejected and Harper unlikely to stay at ICT after being relegated. Have to get one of the two if Edwards is sold.

"We will need two left backs then if he does go…..Surely Fenton was worth a shout at least for the jersey….management obviously thought otherwise.."

more than likely it will be one plus someone who can play there if/when required.

Harper will have bigger teams than us after him, presume McMann would be the same.
Strapp has the long throw but is a no for me.
Milne no chance, Hancock guessing the same for what Airdrie would want for him.

might have to look further afield if its a permanent signing, if it was a loan, Anderson at Celtic springs to mind.

Cameron Harper has played well any time I`ve seen him play and he`s a good age for development. The thing is the club have known about the interest in Josh for quite a while so you`d think they`ll already have some idea about who they`d like to bring in.

Charlton Athletic are hoping to agree a deal for Dunfermline defender Josh Edwards in the coming days.

A report in Scotland claimed that the Scottish side had rejected a six-figure bid for the 23-year-old but that was wide of the mark – both in terms of the size of the offer tabled and also the fact it had not been turned down.

The South London Press has been told that Charlton will look to reach an agreement for Edwards by the end of this week.

Edwards has one more year left on his contract at Dunfermline.

And the League One outfit are also in negotiations with Luke Berry, who is not being retained by Luton Town.

Charlton boss Nathan Jones has talked about wanting the vast bulk of the club’s transfer activity completed before his squad return to pre-season training.

The Addicks have already triggered an option in Thierry Small’s contract to extend the former Southampton and Everton defender’s deal until next summer.

Edwards plays in the same position as Small but can also operate in left midfield.

He scored three goals and claimed eight assists in 36 matches in the Scottish Championship last season.

Edwards has played 182 matches for Dunfermline and previously was on the books of Airdrieonians, featuring 39 times for them.

Barnsley saw a bid rejected in the January transfer window for Edwards.

Dunfermline boss James McPake, talking at the time, said: “For what Josh is worth to us and what he can do, the club knocked that back. It shows real intent from them as well.

“Keeping Josh was very important, for what he does in the team. He could get injured, that’s just the way football is, but a player of his profile is really hard to find.

“And the way he plays that left wing/left wing-back role, I don’t see many like that out there.

“It was very important we kept him. He’s performing at a really high level.

“I’ve said to him, the moves will come for him.

“If he keeps doing what he’s doing for us, he’ll go and have fantastic career because he’s doing everything right.

“He’s training right, he’s working right and he’s looking after himself right.

“He’ll deserve whatever comes for him in football, but we’re delighted to keep him.”

I think we may have sold him in January if our league position wasn`t so precarious?

It doesn`t seem unreasonable to have rejected a £100k offer but reached an agreement for him to leave in the summer? It would have cost us a lot more than 10k if we were relegated.If we set the fee too high, then he can just wait for 6 months and sign a pre-contract elsewhere and we end up with nothing so it`s a balancing act.It also depends what has been promised to the player.

“Charlton Athletic are frontrunners to complete a deal for the in-demand Scottish Championship star.
Charlton Athletic are poised to beat League One rivals Bristol Rovers and Blackpool to bring promising Dunfermline defender Josh Edwards to The Valley in a significant coup for the London outfit.

The South London Press reports that the Addicks hope to have tied up a deal for the 23-year-old `in the coming days` with negotiations currently focused on a serious Addicks bid, believed to be just short of the £1 million price tag rumoured to have been placed on the defender.”

Hi mate, off work just now. I`m also not covering Dunfermline anymore but from what I understand there is a £90k release clause for a certain period. I`m afraid I can`t give any more clarity in where the six figures is coming from.

Thanks for the info Craig. Some wild transfer fees are being bandied about!

As I say, the release clause is only for a couple of weeks period or something, so maybe they`re trying to get it done before/outwith that.

Not for a player that could sign a pre-contract for nothing in 6 months.The player has also maybe been promised a move for not leaving in January.Fair play to him as there are other players who would have been `injured` or downed tools. He is a decent player but is 24 now and there are still attributes to his game that need working on.

As seems standard now, the fee will no doubt be `undisclosed` so we will never know.I assume Airdrie will have inserted a sell on clause too.

From what I can work out. There is a 90k release clause that is only active for a set period after the contract extension was triggered. Race is on for Charlton or any other club to meet Dunfermline`s demands in terms of how that deal is constructed.

As Parathletic says, it will be undisclosed and we`ll never know.

He has to want to go to the team that bids the highest though. You can`t just send him off to the highest bidder-it sounds like there is a clause in place anyway.

He is worth what someone is prepared to pay. They obviously see something in him. He has potential, and from their website, they have referred to that and will develop him. I would have thought that at his age, it`s a good move for him. Good luck to him. He deserves it.

Nonsense, Allan has improved and did not look out of place this season.


In fact, the squad was weaker without him In it,

But to answer your question, it`s funny because when it comes to 24 years of age alot of posters have written off alot of players with regards to development.

Players are always developing and even evolving into their 30`s

When Allan featured this season, the squad had a better return of points per game than when he never featured.

I agree, but it does prove that this season, he more than held his own in this division. With extra scope for improvement in future. I suspect that Tod will feature more next season, and the management believes he has more potential.

I think they will find it hard to get a better player than Allan for his position on the market for the cost of his demands, etc.

I`m just hoping there has already been a couple of deals done (MFW,) and the board have said you can have A but you gotta let B,C and D go.

I’m not deliberately picking on Allan, we finished 6th, seven points off the promotion playoffs and only three away from the relegation ones.

Thats not really good enough for us, regardless of injuries. We need to be doing a lot better and have a stronger squad so letting go of Allan was the correct decision as there will be better options.

I have a similar opinion on Tod seeing you mention him, he has bags of potential but again if we’re going for promotion are we going to do it with Tod in the first team regularly, the answer will be no.

It really depends on how we want to tackle next season, if we want to use it to bring on the younger ones (Tod, Sutherland etc) then be prepared for a bumpy ride.

We also need to build a team that can compete in the Premier League, we’ve noticed just during the playoff there the gap in levels. Players like KRH, Otoo, Todd, Hamilton have shown potential that with more experience and game time could reach that level.

I just can’t see it in Allan, nor McCann although he is contracted.

Not just the young ones either, I’d ideally want Chalmers and O’Halleron off our books, I still struggle with Mehmet.

Think we need a fair bit of a rebuild to be honest but not going to happen all in one season.

Allan is a good player, has time to improve and I`ve not seen anyone saying he`s at his limit. The management team obviously believe the team needs strengthening in other areas or that they can recruit better to help the team right now.

Allans current standing though is nowhere near Edwards.

One has a host of English clubs chasing him, was voted by his peers as the best player in his position in the whole league, played every league game for us, and during a shorter spell at the club has more than twice as many appearances. The other is out of contract.

All this talk of a release clause puzzles me. If there was one wouldn`t the deal have been done by now? I thought a release clause was for the benefit of the player because it guaranteed him a move if a potential buyer was prepared to pay the amount specified in the clause. Isn`t that how McAllister got his move from Brighton to Liverpool?

No, clubs meet the clause but DAFC can negotiate better up front terms, sell on etc. equally the player will take time no doubt if he’s generating interest.

Seemingly the sell on is in place and £90k is the max we’ll get but perhaps a generous sell on clause. If the player wasn’t going to sign a new contract then there had to be something in there so not unsurprising

Being able to add further clauses after the release fee has been reached sounds like a pretty poor contract. So the club would then say ok we will take 90k but we want 100% of all future fees - this seems improbable and really means it is not a £90k release clause at all. It almost sounds as though folk are just making it up like I just did 🤔

Thanks fdca for the Courier article. So we signed Josh from Airdrie? And he`s been with us 5 years. The two teams vying for his signature seem to be very close rivals in the English third tier. I would think Bristol might be a more pleasing location but I don`t suppose his main aim is to be near the seaside.

Extract from Bristol Press:-

Bristol Rovers look set to miss out on the signing of Dunfermline Athletic left-back Josh Edwards to League One rivals Charlton Athletic, Bristol Live understands, after both clubs saw bids accepted by the Scottish Championship side, as first reported by the Courier.

However, the understanding is that Charlton have made the 24-year-old a better wage offer and the Scotsman has subsequently opted to move to South London as opposed to Bristol.

Getting cash for a player with only a year left on his contract is good for the club. It`s a good move for Edwards too - Charlton are a big club with a decent pedigree, and Nathan Jones worked wonders with Luton at this level.

You have to be fair to the player as well.He could have gone in January, so even in that 6 month period he has made a significant financial sacrifice and stayed committed to helping us.
I think if we had been in a better spot in the league table at that time, he might have been away then? We probably decided to take a slight hit on the fee to help us ensure safety.If we had let him go at that time and got into even more of a relegation battle, there would have been a meltdown.

I read some reports last week saying it would be a high 6 figure deal, which I did feel was unrealistic, but if it does turn out to be £90k, then that`s a bit of a blow.

Even if there are sell on clauses, that`s all dependant on him firstly managing to get in their team, up against Thierry Small and Tayo Edun, and then doing well enough to get a decent move.

I could see him fail to hold down a place and be up on loan at Dundee in the New Year, with no future sell on

£90k is nothing to these clubs, worth a punt all day long.

It’s a fine balance between offering long contracts and having players leave for a pittance. We don’t want to be stuck with players who are not good enough for years on end but can’t think our model works selling our best players for £90k.

If there’s a £90k clause I severely doubt we can stipulate anything at all about future selling on fee’s etc as buying club could tell us to get lost as we met the buyout fee.

I would suggest that a release clause is simply that - a release - a minimum amount, not a guaranteed purchase price.
If one club offers 90k and another offers 500k, the club’s release clause would be met, but they would not be obliged to accept the lower one…

Club are 100% obliged to accept the lower price - thats why its called a release clause. A penny lower than that they may refuse. Plus nobody would offer £500k if there was a £90k release clause…..

A £90K release clause means that`s what we will get.

If more than one club agrees to pay that, then it will come down to who offers the best deal TO the player?

We will only ever get the £90K transfer fee.

There may be a sell-on clause, but nobody has muted that, so probably not?

The release cause will have its own stipulations written in to edwards contract. i.e., 90k upfront or 90k upfront +25% future. But once a club meets that, then the club is obligated to accept the deal. I hope for our sake, we have included a future sell on as part of the release. But what it shows to the rest of the squad and future signings is we are willing to let them advance their careers, and not price them out.

That being said 90k is cheap but edwards is going on to better things... the rest is up to him.

A quick google says that the ‘release clause’ can often referred to as a MINIMUM release clause…

None of us here are party to the exact wording in his contract though, hopefully it is a ‘minimum’.

“A clause in a player’s contract which sets a minimum fee that a club must bid to be able to buy that player”

Which HOPEFULLY ties in with rumours of ‘six-figures’

I had a look back at that, but rarely would a sell on fee be disclosed at that point and the fee we paid was described as ` a mutual compensation arrangement` which is a creative way of saying undisclosed 🙂 Guess we will never know as seems to be the way these days.

Good luck to Josh and hopefully we get a capable replacement in.Onwards and upwards for both🤞

You’re really missing the point here. If anyone is willing to pay that minimum fee, we’re obliged to accept. Yes, clubs can choose to pay more, but I highly doubt that any club will, because they have nothing to gain by spending more money than they need to.

Also, in the scenario previously mentioned, we would still have to accept the £90k bid, even if another club offered £500k. Any bid that hits that minimum has to be accepted.

I suppose it depends how it`s approached. If I go to an auction and there`s a minimum reserve price then I can meet that, have my bus accepted and still lose the auction. Though ultimately I suppose it comes down to Edwards. We could have had an offer of £900k and another of 90k but he might decide the 90k suits him better. No skin off his nose.

Clearly no-one is going to pay more than any release clause. Any club can speak to Edwards if they match it, so there is no benefit to going over it.

He`s going to go to the place that gives him the most money and /or opportunity to progress - it`s irrelevant to him how much that club is going to pay the Pars.

A Minimal fee release clause of "£90K" means 10 teams can bid 90k,we can do nothing but accept and it`s down to Edwards. No team would benefit bidding above the release fee

I would have thought the release fee would have been afigure agreed by the club in its evaluation of the player I.e. it could have been based on a % of his wages. Thecreasoning at the time appears to be based on our unwillingness to release him based on our injury situation. It may have been a pragmatic estimate given the cost to the club should we have faced relegation and other factors such as being able to bring in a replacement.

At the end of the day we will get what we get and move on. You have to be fair to the player, more so as our model will be to develop players so that they can progress to higher levels. Perhaps with bringing in young players with a view to developing them we can have a more robust financial model in place

I`m not sure why people think that if there is a 90k minimum release clause, that Charlton are going to put in an offer of 90k and trigger the clause but another club will put in more that the 90k minimum. It just won`t happen. Another team might have a budget of 900k for a left back and they can then table the 90k minimum release clause and use that balance to give Josh a hefty signing on fee, and better wages than he might have got if his market value wasn`t wiped out by a paltry minimum release clause.

Probably a tough one to negotiate, I guess to get him to stay on they had to make some concession and this probably suited Josh and we get something and he helped us avoid relegation which would have been much more costly.

Mr Cook and the people in the other paid positions will need to start proving their worth soon, squeezing every penny out of transfers.

I`m not fussy over the lack of social media marketing, as I`m a bit past that excited kids stage of needing constant updates, but I am picking up that a lot of people want that, and other clubs are doing it. Maybe we need to get Barrowman in. He seems to know what he is doing

Assuming there is a £90k minimum then that is all they have to pay that and not a penny more. It would then be up to the player to decide. That`s why I find it odd that it was reported we turned down £150k. The only thing I can think is that the clause only applies to the final year of the contract?

The difference between 150k to 90k for keeping a consistent performer, not to mention a consistently fit performer, is nothing to be fair. I think without him, at a time when we had terrible injuries we might have slipped back into league 1.

Agree Red Star. We can all look back with comfortable hindsight and say many things but we must look forward.. Look at ICT. Keeping Josh is January was 100% the right thing to do. Good luck to the lad if and when he goes. Very honest Pro who wouldn’t hide behind others for his mistakes.

The guess would be the release clause only became active this summer rather than January so the club could protect itself from losing Edwards on deadline day during an important part of the season. Which was absolutely the correct decision. Without Edwards there`s every chance the club could`ve been in the relegation playoff place

The 24-year-old has now been given permission to travel to London for talks.
The defender is set for his medical later today and if all goes well is expected to finalise his move on a long-term deal.
Charlton look to have beaten off a number of their rivals including Bristol Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers.
Charlton boss Nathan Jones sees the full-back as a key figure in his side pushing for promotion to the English Championship.
The deal will see the Pars cash in on Edwards, who is now going into the final year of his East End Park contract.
Edwards made the move to Dunfermline from Airdrie five years ago."

back up to six figures according to the Daily Record....

It`s quite interesting, say for example 3 teams meet the minimum release clause, Charlton put in £150,000, Bristol Rovers put in £90,000 and Leyton Orient bid £200,000. The club would have to let him speak to all three if he wanted, as they would have triggered the release clause.

All 3 teams might offer him £5k a week, and he could go to whatever one he picked. It might be the case though that Bristol Rovers would say to him, we could build that £60k/ £100k that Charlton/ Orient are giving the club into your bonus package. I`m not really seeing why a club would bid more than the £90k, when they could give that to the player to attract him.

I highly doubt anyone would offer over. If however the terms offered to the player were fairly similar then maybe they`d be swayed by the move that is best for the club they are leaving?

I imagine there could be more intricacies to these deals than just the release fee. Maybe one interested club meets the fee but wants to pay 2 instalments, maybe another want to pay 50k now (not hitting the release fee) but offer to pay another 50k next season, etc.

Not impossible that it`s a little higher.

Geez folk genuinely think any club would pay over the release fee?

The release fee is £90k, it’s not £45k then another £45k at a certain date in the future, that is not meeting the release clause. The money we’re talking about here suggests that’s it’s absolutely no problem for these clubs to afford to take a punt on Edwards meeting the fee, as this price he’d be cheap option as a backup for the first team.

Not sure why this deal has not concluded though unless Josh is on holiday and the buying clubs are happy to wait for him to decide.

Must be the busiest time of the year for a Chairman as well. The Chairman must have got all the managers signing targets tied up on watertight contracts already then. I expect they will all be unveiled at the kit launch on the open day.

McPake has been very quiet too, since the last game on 3rd May, with Mackay doing what rare interviews there has been.

As of 4th June, Rovers had 11 players signed up for next season. We had 17 as of that date - and still do, albeit that will be down to 16 soon.

However, it has been claimed that Charlton are paying far less than was previously anticipated.
The London club are only paying a fee of £85,000 to the Scottish Championship side for the transfer of Edwards.
The defender has been keen on a move to the south of the border and Dunfermline have also been ready to let him leave.

Two thoughts, given that he was one of our most marketable player assets £85,000 (if correct) is not great value for him so I hope the club have managed to get a good percentage sell on clause in the contract. The other thing is that the club have known about the move for ages now so surely a replacement will have been identified and will be announced soon.

I`m not sure the type of wages that players in this league command, but I have seen some figures banded about online suggesting it`s not unreasonable for a Charlton Athletic first team player to be on between £4,600 to £8,000 per week. Even at the lower end of that scale, on a 4 year contract, if he invests his money wisely he could be set for life. Good luck to him

I agree. He was very steady when we needed him defensively but when you see him in midfield he isn`t really so creative. To be honest you could say the same for Hamilton but to a lesser extent.

The report isn`t quite as gloomy as suggested :-

The Dunfermline boss has not ruled out anymore signings before the season starts. I think you could ask any manager and they will say they are never happy but we understand the dynamics in the budget," McPake admitted.

"Every manager in every league in the world would say they would love to add to their squad all over the pitch. We are working away to bring players in and it is difficult obviously. But first and foremost, it will be to replace Josh. The squad we have got is a strong squad when fit."


In another article he admits it was probably a mistake to play such a strong side as St Pauli so early in the pre-season preparations last year.

Nothing imminent? Is he having a laugh? We’ve known Edwards has been going for weeks. No wonder money is tight, less people buying season tickets/prices up.

You can’t ask people to pay more and more and then not have a clear plan for recruitment or the squad. Most fans can see what we have isn’t enough.

The way they are saying we are skint all the time is probably worse than after we came out of admin. It totally stinks.

There`s a difference between `being skint` and being subject to budgetary constraints. No one from the club says we`re `skint`, it`s folk on here who use that expression because it fits their agenda.

It`s strange how fans support financial prudence so we avoid the crises of the past but complain when the manager points out the reality of the current financial climate.

McPake didn’t even say ‘nothing imminent’ that’s something that the poster you quoted has made up to add more drama to it all. As for the ‘skint’ comment, the club haven’t pleaded poverty since we got the investment. That chat is all created by ‘fans’ online that seem to want to create mass panic.

Give what a rest? He has a valid point ffs. Offering players that didn’t keep is in Champ 2 years previously 3 year contracts after a year in a part time league was ludicrous at this level. Its then affected our budgets for the last 2 transfer windows.

A lot of a smoke screen the interview quotes - we are looking to sign players, but happy with squad, but need replacements, but theres little money, but theres some money, but we need the right players……

Why can our management team/board not just give clear and concise information to the fans?

Kieran Ngwenya to sign 2 year deal

Dunfermline Athletic are set to sign Kieran Ngwenya.

The freed Aberdeen defender has agreed a two-year deal at East End Park.

Pars boss James McPake has beaten off a number of Championship rivals, including Partick Thistle, to land him.

The 21-year-old will replace Josh Edwards who moved to Charlton Athletic earlier this month.

Ngwenya had attracted interest from Queen’s Park Rangers.

The English Championship side was keen on him for their development squad but he didn’t want to wait and possibly lose out on Dunfermline’s offer.

The Malawi international leaves Aberdeen after four years at Pittodrie.

The majority of his time there was spent on loan with the likes of Cove Rangers, Kelty Hearts and Raith Rovers.

He spent last season on loan at Championship rivals Partick Thistle.

There will be no sell on clause. There was no negotiation between the clubs. Charlton came in and met the min fee so were free to talk to Josh and they signed him paid us the £90k and said thanks very much.

What the min fee does is get the pars the fee they agreed to put in Josh’s contract and that’s it.

Do you know that though?

The minimum release clause very easily could have been x up front plus y sell on clause.

DBA the release clause at 90k is only there because it was required to get Josh to extend his contract another year. The club would much rather have had no release clause at all.

Given the low value of the release clause, why would Josh then agree to limit any future sell on profit for the purchasing club? It would make him a less attractive asset to potential suiters and there’s no reason to do it, doesn’t take an agent to work that out.

For me there’s zero chance there’s a sell on.

Can’t comment on Edward’s particular contract, but sell-on clauses are pretty common as part of a minimum release clause including in similar circumstance to Josh.

It could be such a low fee because it contains a sell on.

So no, you don`t know. Thanks for clarifying.

Great video, and as much as I liked Josh in a Pars jersey, do Charlton think they`ve signed Roberto Carlos ?
