Wolves midfielder claims he is desperate to be part of Wales' Euro 2016 squad

David Edwards has made just 26 appearances for Wolves this term and has only just returned from a long lay-off.

Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder David Edwards has told of his desperation to make Wales' Euro 2016 squad, as reported by BT Sport.

Edwards has only recently returned from a two month injury lay-off, and he scored Wolves' only goal in their 2-1 defeat at Hull City on Saturday. His return has come just in time to force his way back into Chris Coleman's thoughts, and he explained how he has had contact with the Wales manager.

"I've spoken to the manager, he rang to see how I was progressing with the injury and see where my head was mentally," he said. "Everything has been fine, the medical teams speak to each other and they know I'm back in full training."

The 30-year-old Edwards already has 31 international caps under his belt, and in response to a question asking how he would feel about being left out, he spoke of his desperation to make the squad.

"I'll still be watching the tournament with a keen eye if I fail to make it, but I'm desperate to be on the plane," he said.

Wolves have endured an inconsistent season and currently sit 14th in the Championship table, so they will be pleased to have a man of Edwards' experience and ability back in their side.

They head to Leeds United tomorrow night in what will be somewhat of a dead rubber fixture, with little resting on the outcome.
