‘Good move for him’ – Some fans react to news talented youngster is set to leave


According to a report by Football.London’s Alasdair Gold, Tottenham youngster Marcus Edwards has played his final game for the club.

Italian side Udinese are reportedly closing in on a move for the 20-year-old. Italian new outlets are claiming that the youngster is currently in Italy finalising the deal.

Edwards was very highly rated at the club with manager Mauricio Pochettino even comparing the youngster’s style of play with Lionel Messi’s a few years ago (Sky Sports).

Since then, the youngster has failed to live up to expectations and there have been suggestions of an attitude problem.

Edwards was loaned out to Dutch Eredivisie side Excelsior Rotterdam last season and impressed with some of his performances in the second half of the season.

The midfielder was training with Championship side Brentford last month but a move failed to materialise.

Now, it looks like only a matter of time before Edwards completes his move to the Serie A.


Spurs Web Opinion

Great things were expected of the youngster a few years ago and so it is disappointing to see his Spurs career petering out. This saga once again proves that mere talent is not enough for young players to make it to the first team. What’s far more important is their attitude and mentality.
