Nashville SC parts ways with David Edgar

After just a few weeks wearing Nashville SC gold, defender David Edgar is no longer with the club:

Edgar played 200 minutes in five appearances for the Boys in Gold, completing 88.6% of his passes, clearing 13 balls, intercepting two passes, winning one tackle and eight aerial duels.

The 31-year old Canadian international was signed in the wake of a knee sprain suffered by centerback London Woodberry. It seems that, with Woodberry’s return to the field a week ago for the US Open Cup game against Inter Nashville FC, Edgar’s services are no longer necessary.  The Premier League veteran signed after a knee injury of his own in late 2016 cost him his spot with the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps.

The conclusion of Edgar’s short-term deal will likely see him pursue other options in Major League Soccer or the USL. The Toronto-area native’s family is still based in Canada, and with a young baby born in April, being closer to home may be a consideration.
