Edwards was sent to Vitória de Guimarães in 2019 on a free transfer, with Tottenham agreeing to instead take 50% of his future potential sale.
Reports this week indicated that Edwards was set to join Sporting in a deal worth around £10m, meaning that Spurs would take £5m.
However, A Bola claim that a deal in which Tottenham took 50% of the fee would have been difficult to agree so Sporting Lisbon contacted the North London club.
The Portuguese club asked Tottenham if they would accept a big percentage of Edwards’ future sale when he leaves Sporting Lisbon, which Daniel Levy and co are said to have accepted.
Spurs Web Opinion:
This seems like a good deal for Tottenham. £5m would have been a nice little payday but, if Edwards continues to improve at Sporting, he could be sold for a whole lot more in the future. I hope that Tottenham also managed to insert a buy-back clause, just in case.
