Ryan Edwards: Blackburn defender joins Fleetwood on loan

League Two side Fleetwood Town have signed young Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Edwards on loan for a month.

Centre-back Edwards could make his debut against Aldershot on Saturday.

The 19-year-old has yet to appear for the first team at Ewood Park, but featured 29 times during a loan spell at Rochdale earlier this season.

Graham Alexander's side, who lost 4-0 at home to Burton in their last outing, are two points from a play-off place and five behind third-placed Rotherham.
