Done – Tottenham complete another loan deal for highly-rated youngster

Published

on

Norwich City have completed the loan signing of Tottenham starlet Marcus Edwards. Born in London and a product of Spurs’ Academy, Edwards made his debut for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in September 2016 when he came on as a substitute during their 5-0 EFL Cup win over Gillingham.

An England youth international at various levels, he was a part of the Young Lions squad which won the European Under-19 Championships last summer.

With the talented player yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Lilywhites, Mauricio Pochettino has decided to allow the attacking midfielder to move to Carrow Road on a season-long loan deal. The midfielder’s two appearances for Spurs have both come in the League Cup.

Clubs from England, Germany, the Netherlands and the MLS were all interested in signing the 19-year-old, yet the club believed that a move to Norwich was the best option for both parties.

The news was announced on the official Norwich twitter page on Monday evening. After completing his temporary switch to Carrow Road, Edwards told Norwich City TV:

“I’m really excited and can’t wait to help the team. After hearing about Norwich, I started watching more videos. Then when I spoke to the manager, he made me feel welcome and explained how he wanted to play. There are a few young players here and that will help me.”

The highly-rated midfielder, who found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Spurs, is relishing the challenge of the Sky Bet Championship.

“I’ve been at Tottenham since I was seven or eight, coming through the Academy system,” he explained.

“It’s a big move, but I’m excited about it. I like to get on the ball, take people on, create things and score goals. I’ve looked at the table and the fixture list. I’m hoping to get involved as soon as possible.”

Edwards is considered Tottenham’s one of the most gifted academy talents, and his performances for England at youth level have justified it too. After being overlooked for cup opportunities by head coach Mauricio Pochettino this season, the midfielder has joined Norwich with a desire to return back to us as a much-improved player.

A loan move to the Championship seems to be the right move as the talented 19-year-old will finally get a platform to flaunt his skills and continue his development.

We wish you all the best, Marcus Edwards!
