According to The Guardian Mauricio Pochettino will sanction a Championship loan for promising young talent Marcus Edwards this month.

A host of clubs have declared their interest in the 19-year-old attacking midfielder and the article says the situation is expected to move quickly in the coming days.

Edwards, who made his senior club debut as a substitute in the EFL Cup against Gillingham back in September 2016, has been unable to force himself back into first-team contention this season, however he has been hampered by a string of niggling injuries.

It adds that Mauricio Pochettino has come to accept that Edwards is now at a stage of his development where he needs to gain regular senior football and he considers a loan to the Championship as the right path for the youngster to take.

The manager continues to see a pathway at Tottenham for Edwards, who is so talented that he has acquired the nickname “Mini Messi” at the club.

Edwards clearly has bags of potential but he’s been hampered by injuries and there has been suggestions of an attitude problem. A Championship loan will surely only aid his development
