Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has suggested that Sheffield United couldn’t afford to sign Gwion Edwards in the January transfer window.

Blades are expected to invest in the January transfer window, as they look to keep their promotion push on track.

Chris Wilder’s form has dropped in recent weeks, and some Sheffield United fans have suggested that Edwards would be a good addition.

The Welshman has impressed since moving to Posh back in 2016, with his attacking talents coming to the fore.

Edwards has played as a winger and a wing-back for Peterborough this term, and is one of Grant McCann’s side’s key creative players.

And chairman MacAnthony feels that Edwards value is already beyond what Sheffield United could afford to pay.

Edwards has contributed six goals and five assists for Posh this term, after making 25 appearances across all competitions.

The wide-man picked up an injury in his last appearance for Posh, and is expected to miss McCann’s side’s match against Bury this weekend.
