FORMER Colchester United loanee Owura Edwards has joined Scottish Premiership side Ross County on loan from Championship side Bristol City.

The 21-year-old, who made 13 appearances for the U's after joining them in January, has joined the Scottish team on a season-long loan.

Ross County boss Malky Mackay told the club's website: โ€œOwura is a player that our recruitment department spent a significant amount of time tracking and during that process it was very clear that he is someone that would be a great addition to our group.

"At 21, he has gone out and proven himself across the EFL levels, really learning about the rigours of menโ€™s football and that is great credit to him.


โ€œPrior to us coming to Italy, Owura came up to Dingwall to meet with us and both parties are excited about his move to the Scottish Premiership and the part he can play for Ross County.โ€

Edwards started his career at Newport County and spent time on loan at Mangotsfield United, before joining Bristol City in the summer of 2019.

He made his first-team debut for the Robins against Millwall in January, 2021 and has gone on to play on three further occasions for them, to date.

Since joining Bristol City, he has had loan spells at Bath City, Grimsby Town, Exeter City and Colchester prior to joining Ross County.
