Leading contender Michael Edwards has turned down the opportunity to become the new Chelsea sporting director according to a report.

According to Ornstein, Edwards told the Chelsea hierarchy recently that his intention was to take some time away from football rather than jump straight back in.

Edwards left Liverpool at the end of last season after joining the club in November 2011 from Tottenham Hotspur.

Over recent weeks, he has been strongly linked with a move to Todd Boehly's Chelsea but reliable journalist David Ornstein has reported in The Athletic today that Edwards has turned down the opportunity at the Blues.

Ornstein also confirmed that with several other candidates already employed with other clubs at a busy time in the summer transfer window, it is unlikely that anyone will be in place before the end of August.

During his time on Merseyside, Edwards helped manager Jurgen Klopp transform the club into a winning machine with a virtually unblemished record in the transfer market.
