Edgar, 27, can also play in midfield and has won 23 caps for Canada while Gunning is a former Republic of Ireland under-21 international.

Edgar joins the Blues on a two-year deal from Burnley while Gunning has signed a one-year contract to begin on July 1 after leaving Dundee United.

Born in the Canadian city of Kitchener to an English father, he joined Newcastle as a 14-year-old before turning professional, making his debut for the Magpies in December 2006. 

He made 23 appearances for Newcastle before leaving for Burnley in July 2009 on a four-year deal.

While with the Clarets, Edgar made a total of 115 appearances and scored three goals. He also a spent a spell out on loan at Swansea City towards the end of the 2009/10 season.

Last season he made 21 appearances for Burnley as they won promotion to the Premier League.

Gunning, 23, made 99 appearances for Dundee in three years, scoring 10 goals in the process.

Prior to arriving at Tannadice Park in August 2011, the Dubliner was a Blackburn Rovers trainee who enjoyed loan spells with Tranmere Rovers, Rotherham United, Bury and Motherwell before permanently moving north of the border. 

The duo are Blues boss Lee Clark's fifth and sixth summer signings, following Jonathan Grounds, Stephen Gleeson, Grant Hall and Wes Thomas to St Andrew's.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
