Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are a nervous looking bunch ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with West Ham, which could see them move top of the table, and the latest piece of news hasn’t made them feel any better.
The Guardian has revealed highly-rated Tottenham Hotspur prodigy Marcus Edwards is yet to pen a new deal with the club and, as such, will be available on a free transfer in 2017 when his scholarship expires.
17-year-old Edwards is tipped as one of the best prospects within his age group in England and a host of sides in the Premier League, and across Europe, have been alerted to his potential availability after seeing him star for the England U17 side.
Whilst Spurs will hope he will pen a new deal before his current deal expires next summer, Edwards has had an offer on the table since December– and he seems reluctant to sign with the Premier League title chasing side.
Edwards has been at Tottenham since the age of eight and has long been touted as a future first-team player, so it’s unsure as to what the delay in signing a deal is down to.
Our landlord believes this is extremely concerning for Spurs and has urged them to ensure the situation is sorted one way or another before the end of the season.
Spurs fans, what do you know of Edwards? Is he good enough for the first-team yet? Let us know in the comments below!
