Biographical Text

Kyle Edwards played for Exeter City on loan during 2017/18 and scored in the play-off final defeat against Coventry City. He then returned to West Bromwich Albion and later moved to Ipswich Town. Kyle joined City on the same day as fellow West Brom loanee Kane Wilson. 

Kyle had been in WBA’s youth set-up since the age of six becoming a scholar/trainee in 2015. Joining Exeter City on loan on August 31 2017, he made his debut in senior football as a substitute against Notts County in September 2017. Kyle was to go on to make 28 appearances for the Grecians in all competitions coming on as a 73rd minute substitute - and scoring in the 89th minute - as Exeter lost 3-1 to Coventry in the 2017/18 play-off final. Aside from an EFL Trophy strike against Plymouth it was his only goal for the club.

Kyle featured 11 times for Albion in all competitions in 2018/19 around which time he played for England under-20s having previously performed at under-16 and under-17 level. He then made 30 first-team appearances in 2019/20, including the FA win at West Ham, as Albion won promotion to the Premier League.    

Kyle made his Premier League debut in September 2020 but, after making five top-flight appearances, left for Ipswich Town in August 2021 on a three-year deal. He made eighteen appearances during his first season at Portman Road and remained at the club in 2022/23 when he appeared over thirty times (usually as a substitute) as Ipswich won promotion to the Championship. At the start of the following season he joined Oxford United on what was intended to be a season-long loan. Hit by injury, Kyle only played a handful of games for his new club before he was recalled by Ipswich in January 2024 ahead of his contract with the Suffolk club being terminated by mutual consent.  Within days he joined Oxford United on a permanent deal until the end of the season but did not appear again because of injury.
