What Marcus Edwards said after leaving Spurs on a season-long loan


The transfer window has now officially closed and one of the last players to head out of the doors of Tottenham Hotspur was Marcus Edwards.

The 19-year-old has swapped life in Tottenham’s U23 side for a season-long loan spell with Dutch top-flight side Excelsior.  

While the likes of Oliver Skipp, George Marsh and Luke Amos were included on our pre-season tour of the USA and Edwards was left out, the writing was already on the wall.

After a failed loan stint at Norwich last season, hopefully, the opportunity for Edwards to move to a different country and play first-team football will see him finally grow up.

His talent is known among Spurs fans but unfortunately, he does not have the attitude to match.

“When I heard about the interest I did not have to think about it for a long time,” a  Edwards was quoted by Football.London

“I have been following the Dutch Eredivisie for some time and I think that football fits me here. I honestly did not know much about Excelsior, but I looked up a few things and what I read really appealed to me.

“I still have to meet everyone, but I already feel welcome. There is a great atmosphere at this club.”

Will Edwards come back next season with a new attitude and finally prove his worth at Spurs?
