Tottenham fans have been reacting to the confirmed departure of Marcus Edwards, and they’re praying this loan spell goes smoothly.
Mauricio Pochettino has shown time and time again that he has a wonderful knack of producing the best from young talents, but as of yet he has not been able to do the same with Edwards.
The club confirmed on Thursday that the youngster will spend the season on loan with Excelsior, and perhaps the open space and speed of play in the Eredivisie will help him kick-start his career.
The 19 year-old, who is yet to make a Premier League appearance, has incredible quick feet, skill and swagger on the ball, but has yet to really put it all together in the right way.
After struggling for game time in North London, he joined Norwich on loan last season, only to be sent back to Spurs before the expiry of the loan, having made just one Championship appearance.
Loads of fans have been reacting to his latest loan move, and they’re hoping this could be a master stroke from Pochettino to stop this obvious talent going to waste.

Best of luck to the player, he has far too much potential to not go on to be a top, top player for us.
If he can just knuckle down and apply the right attitude there’s absolutely no reason why he can’t work his way to a place in the Spurs first-team under Pochettino.

Hopefully a better loan spell than the last one.

I think this is going to be his last chance. Not in football, but if he ever wants to make it at Spurs, he has to do well now

Get your head down and come back fighting for a first team place

Hopefully he produces in this one and doesn’t let his natural ability come to nothing
