As reported by The Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur’s talented youngster Marcus Edwards is seeking a move away from the club this summer after failing to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s first team.
Edwards has just a single senior Spurs appearance to his name, which came against Gillingham in League Cup action back in 2016, and despite high praise from manager Pochettino he has failed to make the breakthrough.
Even a loan spell at Norwich City was cut short earlier this year, with the player making just a single appearance for the Canaries.
Now 19 years of age, he is at a critical stage of his development and needs regular action to progress, something he is clearly unlikely to find at Tottenham, who have ambitions of winning silverware.
Supporters of the club don’t seem fazed by his imminent departure, believing he has attitude problems and that his talent is not as great as has been made out.
Will Spurs come to regret letting him go so easily?
These fans don’t think so…
He’s been given more chances than most. Something isn’t right with him, whether it’s mental or physical. He has the talent but is going to be another Tarrabt with the way things are going. https://t.co/JldIOpMYvC

#THFC fans crying about Marcus Edwards wanting to leave cos he's apparently a "special talent". Is he? Based on what? All the kid has done is embarrass himself & show immaturity. If he leaves, so be it, bored of excuses being made for him based on idea he'll be a great player

He’s done absolutely nothing to justify displacing Son, Dele or Eriksen though 🤷🏻♂️

He’s got an attitude problem, thinks he’s better then he actually is. I think he’ll go.

Bad attitude, get him out

? Bye Bye. Bennett’s was the one we should’ve kept hold, Edwards ain’t what he’s made out to be

Couldn’t get in the Norwich team on loan and clearly has some issues. If Poch doesn’t want to keep him then that is all good with me. Poch will have tried to sort him out

His own ego has failed him, hope for his own good he turns his career around elsewhere
