Tottenham midfielder set for potential exit from White Hart Lane, top clubs eyeing move

Edwards

White Hart Lane has been somewhat of a fountain of youth this season for the Tottenham fans who, despite losing out on the title this week, have had so much to celebrate this season.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has crafted a dynamic, vibrant young side and nurtured the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli into all but certainties to start for England at the European Championships this summer.

Imagine the annoyance then, following reports from Football Insider, that highly rated young midfielder Marcus Edwards could be set to leave the club after rejecting a new deal.

Such is the nature of the excitement surrounding the talented teen, top clubs around the continent are understood to be casting a watchful eye over his situation.

The 17-year old is one of the most highly rated in his age group and starred for England at his age group’s World Cup in November.

His current deal runs out in 2017, meaning he could leave as a free agent in just over a year in what could be a blow to the growing sense of investment in youth at the Lane.

Like what you’ve seen of Edwards? Or is it another example of a young player asking for too much at such a young age?
