LOAN WATCH: Stoke's Edu open to permanent Philadelphia Union move

Maurice Edu has indicated that he would be prepared to make a permanent move to the Philadelphia Union.

The 28-year old American midfielder is nearing the end of his season-long loan from Stoke City but suggests he would be open to coming back to PPL Park in 2015 if the opportunity were to present itself.

"These are things that need to be discussed," Edu told MLSsoccer.com.

"It's out of my hands a little bit. But I've definitely enjoyed it here. This is a group I believe in. I have a lot of confidence about things we can achieve.

"This year we could have achieved a lot but we came up a little bit short. But we have a good group here. And if we're able to keep this team together, I think we can be very successful in the coming years."

The former Toronto FC, Rangers and Bursaspor man has made 29 appearances in 2014, scoring three goals for the Union who sit seventh on the Eastern Conference table with two matches remaining in the regular season.
