BURTON Albion can confirm that midfielder Ryan Edwards will leave the club on the expiration of his contract.
Edwards signed for the Brewers in the summer of 2019 from Scottish side Hearts on a two-year contract and has now opted to accept a contract with a leading team in South Korea.
In his two seasons at the Pirelli Stadium, Edwards made 90 appearances, scoring nine goals, and was voted Player of the Season by the fans and his teammates last season.
The 27-year-old Australian was also named as Burton Albion’s PFA Community Champion for 2019/20, and was regularly involved with Burton Albion Community Trust events throughout his tenure at the Pirelli.
"We made Ryan an offer to stay with us and tried everything we could to keep hold of him, but he has chosen to continue his career overseas,” said manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
"He is making a decision for his family and we have to respect that.
"He has been a fantastic player, professional and teammate, and I know everyone at the club wishes him all the best for the future.”
