Southampton beat off competition from others to sign Edwards from Reading and their track record of giving youngsters a pathway to the first team will no doubt play a big factor in whether they can keep hold of him, says the Daily Mail.
Describing Edwards, Southampton U18s coach Mikey Harris said: "Diamond missed the majority of the season through injury.
"But since he's come back into the team, he's scored some fantastic goals and he's definitely a player that will get the fans off their seats.
"He's an excellent dribbler. And yeah, he can work a shot and can score goals and create goals. He also runs really hard for the team.
"So it's been great to have him back. He's worked really hard in his rehab to get back here. So we're really pleased for him."
