Stoke recently recalled Edwards from his loan at League One side Fleetwood Town, where he played 12 games over a three-month stretch, reportedly with the intent to loan him again. The report claims Edwards has long been a Red Bulls target, and that the parties would like to get the deal done before the start of the 2021 MLS season.
The 21-year-old has been with Stoke since he was eight, and made his debut in 2017 when the club was still in the Premier League. He was a regular fixture during their return to the Championship in 2018-19, but has seen his playing time decrease since. Edwards also played for England's under-20 team in 2018 and 2019.
