The 27-year-old has spent the last four seasons with the Dons and has penned a two-year deal with Rovers.

Edds began his career in England as a trainee with Nottingham Forest and joined Dons in 2004 following spells at Bradford and Swindon

Rovers boss Ronnie Moore said: "I'm delighted to have signed Gareth. He's as comfortable at right-back as he is in midfield, so his versatility will be very useful.

"Last season we missed having a box-to-box midfielder and Gareth will provide that.

"He is a hard working, quality player who is a good signing for the club and I look forward to working with him."
