Tony Pulis' team have already signed two of Edu's team-mates this summer in former Rangers star Jamie Ness and fellow USA international Geoff Cameron.
They drew 1-1 with newly-promoted Reading on the opening day of the Premier League season before holding Arsenal to a 0-0 tie at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.
