British tennis ace Kyle Edmund will warm up for Wimbledon at Eastbourne.

Edmund, British No.1 in the absence of the injured Andy Murray, has entered the men's event in the Nature Valley International at Devonshire Park from June 22 to 30.

He is joined by fellow top 20 player and No.1 seed Diego Schwartzman, Daniil Medvedev and teenage prospects Alex de Minuar and Denis Shapovalov along with experienced former world No.3 David Ferrer.

Top two in the world Simona Halep and Caroline Wozniacki head the women's field with Eastbourne-based British No.1 Johanna Konta, ex-Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, last year's winner Karolina Pliskova and semi-finalist Heather Watson.
