Partick were relegated from the Scottish Premiership last week following a play-off defeat to Livingston.

Edwards did have a deal with Partick until 2020, but that included a relegation clause which he has invoked.

SunSport has reported Ben Garuccio's new club Hearts are interested in 24-year-old Edwards who spent time with Perth Glory in the A-League. 

Edwards made 44 appearances and scored five goals in all competitions for the Jags last season.

The midfielder is well regarded in Scotland, having joined Thistle in 2015.
