Melbourne Heart FC confirms the signing of promising midfielder Cameron Edwards on a senior contract for the remainder of the 2012-13 Hyundai A-League season.
Edwards, 20, joins Heart after impressing coaching staff during a two-week training stint with the Club in December.
Edwards signed with Championship side Reading in 2011 where he developed into a dynamic left-footed central midfielder, before playing out his contract and joining the Nike Football Academy in July 2012.
Edwards has spent the last six months training with the Academy in England, following in the footsteps of Academy graduate Tomas Rogic, who joined A-League leaders Central Coast Mariners in January.
Melbourne Heart General Manager, Football Operations, John Didulica praised Edwards’ pedigree, stating he would add extra depth to the senior squad.
“Cameron is a hugely talented left-sided midfielder with a professional work ethic and he has the capacity to be a great acquisition for the Club,” Didulica said.
“It is not east to find silky left-sided players with elite experience, so we are happy Cameron has chosen to continue his football development with Heart.”
Edwards will wear the number three jersey.
