Edwards joined the Portuguese club in the summer of 2019 having made just one senior appearance for the North Londoners which against Gillingham in the EFL Cup in 2016.

He revealed in an interview with iNews in August of last year that while he does not sit back and mull over how his time at Tottenham ended, he does wish he made more appearances for the club where he came through the academy ranks.

The playmaker has impressed during his time in Portugal having scored ten goals in 50 appearances in all competitions, including a goal against Arsenal upon his return to North London in a Europa League tie in October 2019 (transfermarkt).

The 22-year-old was linked with a return to his former club when Portuguese news outlet A Bola claimed last summer that Spurs were considering an attempt to bring him home.
