Substandard Edgar unlikely to remain on Tyneside

Substandard Edgar unlikely to remain on Tyneside

Newcastle United defender David Edgar is unlikely to receive a new contract after his current deal expires on 30 June, 2009.

It has emerged that the Canadian player is keen on a move away from the Toon to further his ambitions as he feels that United have not valued his talents.

Making 13 appearances for the Magpies last term, Edgar was anything but poor, and his defensive lapses, and lack of attacking flare was epitomized in the final day clash against Aston Villa, when Newcastle United were relegated from the English Premier League.

The decision to not extend Edgar's stay at the Tyne seems to be a sound one, and one may finally say that Newcastle United are developing a backbone in staving off the weak-links from the squad.

One hopes Shola Ameobi will be next on the list of departures. The time for sub-par players who are clearly passed it, must come to an end in the North-East.
