Dave Edwards brought the curtain down on a near-decade-long stay at Wolverhampton Wanderers by joining Reading during the summer.

Dave Edwards has heaped praise upon Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo and suggested the club's owners will only deliver success during their time at Molineux, the Express and Star reports.

The 31-year-old brought an end to his near-decade-long stay with Wolves in the summer, joining their Championship rivals Reading at a time when the supporters of his old side could probably not be more excited about what the future may hold after an eventful summer window.

The likes of Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota have captured the imagination with their arrivals, and Edwards admitted that while he is personally disappointed that his own association with the club came to an end, he is optimistic for Wolves.

“It’s a shame that it ended like it did in a situation where it was all done so quickly but the club’s going in a new direction and I honestly think that it’s going to be very successful," he said, as reported by the Express and Star.

“The new head coach is very good and the owners are going to be a huge success as well. With that comes new faces and, unfortunately for me, I didn’t fit the bill.”

It has certainly been a bright start to the season for Nuno's men, with three wins and a draw coming from their opening five Championship fixtures.

That has left them fourth in the table going into the international break, and they are through to the third round of the League Cup after beating Premier League side Southampton in the second round. 

But while Edwards is excited for Wolves' prospects this season, and will surely be willing them to do well, he will be hoping that when Nuno brings his side to the Madejski Stadium in November, Edwards' new team can dent their promotion hopes ever so slightly.
