David Edgar has returned unscathed from his globetrotting international break and is set to feature for Sheffield United this weekend.

The Canadian international defender played in two World Cup qualifiers against Belize. Canada won on home soil 3-0 in Toronto, before a 1-1 draw in Belize.

But despite chalking up thousands of miles to Canada and Central America, Edgar is set to feature on Saturday when the Blades host Bury in League One at Bramall Lane.

“David has been on the other side of the world, representing Canada,” said Blades boss Nigel Adkins.

“He’s come back to us today and he’s fine. He isn’t out of the game.”

Adkins has also been relieved to see Louis Reed (England Under-19s), Che Adams (England Under-20s) and Callum McFadzean (Scotland Under-21s) return to United in good health.

Adkins also gave fitness updates on injured duo Stefan Scougall and James Wallace: “Scouggs has also been training.

“He had stitches on his ankle, in a very awkward place. It was a nasty gash and his ankle was very swollen.

“James hasn’t trained yet with his calf but he’s still progressing.”
