September 2019 saw Marcus Edwards end his association with Tottenham Hotspur, a club which he had been part of since he was just eight year’s old.
Prior to his move to Portugal, Edwards trained with Brentford last summer but suffered a hamstring injury which put pay to his chances of moving to the Bees.
Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest both showed interest but a move failed to materialise and he instead followed in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho by looking to establish his career on the continent at Vitoria (The Athletic).
The 20-year-old has revealed 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 North Londoners.
Despite his promise, Edwards only has one senior appearance to his name to show for his time at the club.
The midfielder believes at one time he was close to breaking into the first time, only for a lengthy injury to curtail his hopes.
He told iNews: “There was a period where I was really close to getting into the team and then I ended up getting injured. I was out for like six or seven months, but that happens,” he reflects. “Obviously, I wanted to play for Tottenham more times than I did because that’s my childhood club, but I don’t dwell on it. I just move on.”
