David Edgar has indicated he would be keen on joining Sheffield United permanently if Birmingham City declare him surplus to requirements.

The defender, whose loan at Bramall Lane expires at the end of the season, faces an uncertain future in the Midlands after making only three appearances for the Championship club since Gary Rowett’s appointment midway through last term.

Edgar said: “I am loving it at Sheffield United. This is a great group with a great management. And right through to the people at the stadium, the people who work in the kitchens.

“Among the lads, there is not a bad egg amongst us. It is really enjoyable to come into work in a morning. Playing football is what we are here for. We do feel something is building. I am part of a massive club.”

Edgar, whose contract with City expires in June, scored during Monday’s victory over Bradford City and is expected to make his 16th start for Nigel Adkins’ side against Peterborough this afternoon.

“The spell after half-time was really enjoyable,” Edgar added. “Everyone wants to enjoy their football and we are no different. When we are playing like that and the crowd is right behind us, there is no better place to play.

“League one is very tight. Anyone can go up. It is all about putting a run of results together, a bit like the Championship in that if you go on a run of games then anything really can happen.

“It has been a good month for us and the Bradford win was a culmination of a few ground out victories. Bradford was when everything came together and it sets us up nicely for Peterborough.”
