The 19-year-old joined the Spireites in July on an initial one-month deal but his performance in pre-season and on the opening day of the League Two campaign against Bury on Saturday have led to Blues boss Paul Cook prolonging his stay at the Proact Stadium.

"He's deserves it. He's a young player who will make mistakes but the games he's been involved in he's been outstanding," Cook told reporters ahead of his side's Capital One Cup tie at Leeds on Wednesday night.

Edwards partnered Sam Hird at the centre of defence for the 2-0 win at Bury and the pair are in line to continue their roles at Elland Road with Ian Evatt and Liam Cooper still short of match fitness.

Meanwhile, Cook confirmed that Hamza Bencherif has left the club. The midfielder, a free agent after being released by Notts County this summer, had been on trial with the Spireites.

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.
