"But I've been encouraged by what I've seen in training and the games, and agreeing non-contract terms with him means he can be included in our squad."

Edwards, whose side begin the new season with a home game against York City on Saturday, added: "He'll get better and better the fitter he gets, and we can sit down and discuss his future with him then."
