Edwards, 24, joined Hearts in the off-season from Partick Thistle who were relegated last season from the Scottish top flight.

The ex-Perth Glory man hasn’t featured yet for Hearts across eight matches in all competitions.

STV has reported St Mirren are keen on a loan for Edwards who has a two-year deal at Tynecastle.

St Mirren are currently 10th in the 12-team Premiership after three games, with one win and two defeats, while Hearts are top with three wins from their three games.
