CARLOS Edwards is "desperate" to pull on a Millwall shirt again – but admits that will not happen this season.

The right back, 36, has made signifiant progress since he underwent surgery on an horrendous leg injury in September.

But Edwards is not prepared to risk his future career by rushing back from the treatment room before he is fully rehabilitated.

"As much as I would like to play again this season, there's no chance of that happening unless I have a fairy godmother who can wave a magic wand," Edwards said.

"I need to get this right because a few years ago this could've been a career-ending injury.

"It's a complicated injury – it's my knee ligaments and my hamstring – but I'm buzzing with the progress I've made."

Due to the timescale of Edwards' recovery, his contract at The Den will expire while he is still working his way back to full fitness.

"The gaffer will have a word with me about that but those things are private," the defender added.

"Nothing has been said thus far but the main thing is getting fit. That's my only objective and the contract will come after that.

"But I'm desperate to play again. I'm not desperate enough to rush back before I'm ready but I'm desperate to pull on a Millwall shirt again."

    Probably the best 63 year old I've seen play football.

    Great player and hope he comes back as good as he was before this.
