CAERNARFON Town are set to bolster their defensive ranks with the signing of Mike Pearson.

The Chronicle understands that the experience centre half is a prime target for the JD Welsh Premier League side, and a deal to bring Pearson to The Oval is set to be confirmed in the coming days.

Pearson joined Llandudno last summer during wholesale changes at the club under departed manager Iwan Williams, where he was one of the bright spots of an otherwise disappointing campaign that resulted in their relegation from the top flight.

The former Wales C international also enjoyed a hugely successful spell at Connah’s Quay Nomads and began his career as a member of the Oldham Athletic Academy system.

He also lists Barrow and Airbus Broughton among his former clubs, and he was named in the JD Welsh Premier League Team of the Season in both 2015 and 2016.

Another prominent target for the Canaries is yet to give them a decision on his future, with defender Kai Edwards mulling over an offer from the club for the upcoming campaign, per sources.

The centre half is in high demand after a good season at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, with Edwards also considering offers from Bala Town and Prestatyn Town who are also looking to acquire his services.

Should he sign for Allan Bickerstaff and Sean Eardley’s side, Edwards would potentially link up with brother Noah, who signed for the club last year and had a huge impact.
