Chesterfield sign Blackburn Rovers' Ryan Edwards on loan

Chesterfield have signed Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Edwards on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old spent time on loan with Rochdale and Fleetwood in League Two last season.

He captained Rovers to the FA Youth Cup final in 2012 but has yet to feature for the first team.

Assistant manager Leam Richardson told the club website:  "Ryan has bags of potential and we think he's going to develop into a brilliant player."
