The former Swansea City youth was sold last week to League One club Peterborough United for a six-figure sum.

But the sale went through in the midst of media reports that both Scotland’s biggest two clubs were making bids.

The same site, HITC, said Crawley had placed an asking price of £200,000 on Edwards.

Drummy said: “I am happy with the business done on Gwion.

“On one hand you don’t want to lose a quality player, on the other hand you don’t want to be sitting in December knowing you are going to lose a quality player for no money.

“So it was a decision that initially the player, we were informed, wanted to move on and wouldn’t be signing (a new contract).

“It meant we could follow-up a couple of tentative enquiries we did have.

“We had no enquiries from Celtic or Rangers.”
