According to the clubs official website, the 21-year-old was seen playing in PEC Zwolle colours by chief AmaTuks scout, Paul Mathews, when the university side took on the Dutch outfit in a friendly.
"When we played against Zwolle in Holland I liked his athleticism and the fact that he plays forward all the time, he plays center mid but can also slot in at central defence.
“At Tuks we are very good defensively but we need to keep the ball more and attack more and we though he would be a natural replacement for Matsi.
“We hope this move will work out for us and he can slot right in and make Tuks the place for him to grow and achieve great things.”
Edge will be the third Kiwi to play in the PSL next season.
SuperSport United lured Jeremy Brockie in the January transfer window last season where he showed that he is capable of netting several goals.
Gordon Igesund then went on to sign defender, Michael Boxall, for the 2015/16 PSL campaign.
Edge reveals that he is excited to play in South Africa despite AmaTuks playing a different style of soccer.
“When I saw them (Tuks) against Zwolle they were quite fast and they attacked all the time,” said Edge.
“I only played in the second half of the match so I did not really get too much time against them.
"I have not followed South African football but I watched a few videos of Tuks and in one they were playing against Pirates.
“I like how they play, it's a bit different style of football than what I am used to, very attacking, very direct; but I will do my best to fit right in.”
