West Brom

West Brom forward Kyle Edwards is poised to join Luton Town on loan, Football Insider can reveal.

The 22-year-old is deemed surplus to requirements this season and has been given the green light to leave The Hawthorns.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Luton are closing in on the capture of Edwards on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.

The attacker has made five Premier League appearances for the Baggies this season but is yet to feature in the league since Sam Allardyce’s appointment in December.

His last senior appearance came in the FA Cup – a penalty shootout loss at Blackpool earlier this month.

A product of Albion’s academy, Edwards has made 49 appearances for West Brom and weighed in with four goals and five assists.

He played a big part in the Baggies’ promotion campaign last year, he registered one goal and two assists in 23 Championship appearances, of which 10 were starts.

Edwards has entered the final six months of his contract at The Hawthorns and could leave on a free in the summer.

The club activated a one-year extension on his deal last May but a new long-term agreement is yet to materialise.

Luton boss Nathan Jones has offered the winger an exit from Sam Allardyce’s side, as he looks to add more creativity to his side before tonight’s transfer deadline.

The Hatters are currently 13th in the Championship and 10 points clear of the relegation zone.
