Tottenham Hotspur have announced that once-promising youngster, Marcus Edwards, has now left the club on the European transfer deadline day.
Edwards will now join up with the Portuguese Primeira Liga side, Vitoria SC, as he looks to salvage his career.
The tricky winger was once regarded by many as Tottenham’s brightest academy prospect, but Edwards was never really able to live up to the hype.
After making one appearance under Pochettino in the League Cup, Edwards was given the chance to prove himself property when loaned out to Norwich City (Wikipedia).
However, the move went woefully for the forward and he was sent back to Spurs early. He then enjoyed a somewhat successful spell in the Netherlands at Excelsior, but he was still unable to catch Pochettino’s eye.
He will now be playing against Arsenal in the Europa League group stages, so perhaps there is hope to repay Tottenham fans’ faith in him yet.
