Edwards targets immediate Premier League return for Wolves

Wales international praises the Molineux supporters for sticking with their side despite a disappointing campaign and wants to reward them with promotion next season
Wolves midfielder David Edwards is eyeing promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt next season under new manager Stale Solbakken.

The Midlands side's three-year spell in the top flight came to an end this term, with a dismal campaign seeing them go five months without a home win, and winless since February, as they finished adrift at the bottom of the table.

Owner Steve Morgan declared after appointing Solbakken that the new boss does not need to get Wolves back amongst the English elite at the first time of asking, but Wales international Edwards reckons that they should be aiming for a good start to the new campaign to bounce back at the first attempt.

"Our aim has got to be promotion because this is a huge club with great fans and everything is in place for us to bounce straight back," said the midfielder to the club's official website.

"We need a good start to next season and then hopefully that momentum can carry us through.

"It's really important to get off to a good start - teams who have gone down in the past have had a bit of a hangover at the start of the season.

"We've really got to get out of the blocks quickly."
