United manager Adkins said: “David is the captain of Canada and has got plenty of experience at a higher level, including winning promotion to the Premier League with Burnley.

“He is 6ft 2in, a big presence and his versatility will be useful as he can play at centre-half or in central midfield.”

Edgar can play either at the back or in central midfield. He has been capped more than 30 times by Canada.
