Britain supervisor Eddie Jones is searching for another resistance mentor after Paul Gustard consented to join Premiership club Harlequins and British media announced that Edwards, who has multi year left on his Wales contract, was a main possibility for the activity.
The previous rugby alliance champion would likewise speak to the Rugby Football Union (RFU), who are quick to designate an Englishman.
“He’s focused on us until the World Cup,” Gatland told columnists. “Be that as it may, if different open doors go along, he needs to consider those in light of the fact that he’s out of agreement after the World Cup.
“There are a few world-class protective mentors out there and he’s certainly one of them.”
Previous Wasps mentor Edwards has been a piece of Gatland’s Wales training set-up since 2008, the combine winning three Six Nations titles together.
