PRESTATYN Town are set to pull off a major transfer coup with the impending signing of Kai Edwards.

The Journal understands that the gifted defender has agreed to link-up with manager Neil Gibson at the Motion Finance Stadium after turning down offers from JD Welsh Premier League duo Bala Town and Caernarfon Town.

This is a significant statement of intent from the Seasiders, who are aiming to mount a serious promotion bid in the newly formed FAW Tier Two Northern Championship next season after a fine second half of the Huws Gray Alliance campaign.

Edwards is from the region and had a previous spell at Town on loan from Wrexham, with brothers Zyaac and Zebb also poised to return to the club upon the official opening of the domestic transfer window.

The Wales C international has acquired a wealth of experience in the domestic game, with his efforts for Connah’s Quay Nomads drawing widespread praise before he opted to join Llandudno last summer, much to the annoyance of Nomads’ boss Andy Morrison.

This is the latest in a series of eye-catching signings from the club during the initial stages of their pre-season plans, with Michael Parker and Rob Hughes also set to sign for the ambitious set-up following their respective releases by Connah’s Quay Nomads.

Chairman Neal Colakoglu revealed to The Journal that he has formed a long-term plan to get the Seasiders’ back into Europe in the not-too-distant future, and Gibson will be given “whatever is needed” to ensure his dream becomes a reality.
