Walsall manager Jon Whitney has hailed Joe Edwards as the club's 'Mr Versatile' as the former Yeovil Town and Colchester United man continues to show playing ability in a variety of positions.

26-year-old Edwards, who was played at full-back, wing-back, central and wide midfield since joining the club last summer, has also been hailed as a role model for the club's up-and-coming players with Jon Whitney praising him for his ability to adapt when called upon.

Jon, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "He played left wing-back towards the end of last season and also left midfield once or twice when we played a 4-4-2.

"It is important with full backs like Luke and Nicky because they like to bomb on. So if we have got Joe and Kieron coming inside – that gives us space for the full-backs to step out.

"That is what we are looking at now, who can play with who. Joe can play the other side as well. He is Mr Versatile. And I thought it was important we had a look at him over there.

"I think Joe gives us security defensively but he also links in really well, His discipline is also really good and he loves responsibility. He is a role model for our younger players."
