BURNLEY boss Brian Laws says he may consider allowing David Edgar to go out on loan after the Canadian expressed a desire to start playing on a regular basis.

Kevin McDonald could be set to join a fellow Championship club in a temporary deal before the weekend and Laws is contemplating loaning out further players as he bids to keep his entire squad match sharp.

A number of players were in the shop window at last night’s reserve game against Shrewsbury, when several managers and scouts were present, and Laws has revealed that Edgar is one of those he is considering allowing to leave on loan.

The 23-year-old has started two league games this season but has not even made the bench in recent weeks and says he just needs to play football – whether at Turf Moor or on loan.

Laws said: “We’ve got to consider everything.

“There’s no-one who we can say, ‘No, you’re not going out (on loan)’.

“We’ve got to at least look at it and see what comes.

“David’s been part of the squad and the team, and we’ve been pleased with his progress particularly in the summer.

“But there are a number of players that need to get out on loan to get games.

“You’ve got to have people knocking at the door as well, though, to ask for the players and we’ve just got to assess whether we think it’s the right timing.”

Edgar said: “I have to start playing games. “Whether that’s at Burnley or out on loan somewhere, that’s what I’ve got to do.”
