Edwards feels Dutch football will suit him.
He said: “When I heard about the interest, I did not have to think about it for long.
“I have been following the Dutch competition for some time and I think that football suits me here. I honestly did not know much about Excelsior, but I looked up a few things and what I read really appealed to me.
“I still have to meet everyone, but I already feel welcome. There is a pleasant atmosphere at this club.”
Edwards joins Excelsior on a season-long loan. He could make his debut against ADO Den Haag this weekend.
