Harry Wheeler hopes St Albans City can strike a deal to keep Jonathan Edwards at the club until the end of the season.
The loan signing from Peterborough United is due to play his final game this weekend against Bishop’s Stortford.
The 19-year-old has impressed since joining at the beginning of the month, scoring three goals, including the winner at home to Maidenhead United.
And the St Albans caretaker manager, who handed Edwards his first start against Chelmsford City, would love to see the agreement extended.
He said: “He wants more [starts], he told me he didn’t think he did enough.
You may also want to watch:
“I thought he could have scored. I would expect someone of his quality to score one-on-one and he’s come off disappointed.
“But he’s a very good player and he’s got a very good future in the game. And it won’t be at this level, it will be at a higher level.

“But at the moment he’s doing a job for us. How long for I don’t know. At the moment [Saturday] is his last game but we’ll try and keep that on.
“That won’t be down to us, that will be down to Peterborough but we would love to have him for the remainder of the season.”
