Joe Edwards staying with Bristol City for now
Joe Edwards will be staying put at Ashton Gate for the foreseeable future after returning from a loan spell at Yeovil Town.
Although the League One club, managed by former Robins boss Gary Johnson, are keen to strike a deal to bring Edwards back to Huish Park during January, the versatile youngster is needed by City right now.
The hamstring injury that ruled Richard Foster out of Tuesday's 2-1 defeat at Millwall and Albert Adomah's call-up to the Ghana squad for the African Cup of Nations has left City manager Derek McInnes short of options on the right side.
Named among the substitutes in last week's 4-2 victory over Peterborough and on the bench once again at the New Den, Edwards could make his first senior appearance of the season in Saturday's FA Cup third round clash with Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Mark Wilson came in for regular right-back Foster against Millwall, but was clearly ring-rusty after not featuring in a first team game since October.
McInnes is considering his options and, in the continued absence of Foster, could call upon Edwards from the start.
Foster could be fit for next week's home game against Championship promotion hopefuls Leicester, but Edwards is likely to be needed as cover while Adomah is away.
McInnes confirmed: "Joe is in the squad for Saturday and we will look at it again after the weekend.
"Yeovil are keen to extend his stay with them, but we will see where we are before making a decision.
"We have a couple of injuries at the moment, so Joe will stay with us and we will see what happens after the FA Cup tie."
