Troy Parrott may be the name on everyone’s lips around Tottenham at the moment, but before the Irishman burst onto the scene, it was all about young Marcus Edwards.
Despite being earmarked as one for the future, even regarded as a ‘mini Messi’ by Mauricio Pochettino, the English winger never quite made it at Spurs.
He made one League Cup appearance in the 2016/17 season and endured a woeful spell on loan to Norwich City in the 2017/18 campaign, registering just two matches (Wikipedia).
Despite a more promising loan to Excelsior last season, Spurs eventually let the youngster fly the nest on a permanent deal to Vitoria de Guimaraes last year, where he scored his first goal for the club against Arsenal in the Europa League.
The outlet also claim that Spurs would get 50% of any fee earned by Vitoria in a Marcus Edwards transfer, although it has been rubbished that Spurs have a €13.6m buy-back clause.
