According to Football Insider, some promising transfer news has come out of Tottenham Hotspur and it involves promising Peterborough United defender Ronnie Edwards.
The Lowdown: Lilywhites eye lower league talent?
Spurs and transfer chief Fabio Paratici have been no strangers to lower league talent, according to reports in recent months.
Tottenham have also apparently turned their attention to the signing of Oxford United defender Luke McNally in recent months with one bid of £2 million having already been put on the table (Football Insider).
Now, as per FI, news has emerged on another.
The Latest: Spurs prepare Edwards bid…
According to their information, Tottenham are preparing an offer for the centre-back as they line up a move.
Peterborough, it is believed, are braced for bids from the Lilywhites and other clubs with the north London side now stepping up their interest.
This comes after Spurs started making regular checks on Edwards ‘in recent weeks’.
The Verdict: Make a move?
The England Under-19 international is apparently very highly rated and has already been impressing in England’s second tier.
Edwards, still only a teenager, has played very regularly in the Championship under both ex-boss Duncan Ferguson and new manager Grant McCann.
In that time, he has stood out as a brilliant performer, averaging one of the highest pass accuracy percentages out of Peterborough’s squad whilst also a noteworthy amount of clearances per 90 (WhoScored).
Described as an ‘incredible talent‘ by his former gaffer Ferguson, Edwards now attracting Spurs’ interest is hardly a surprise given some of his exceptional 2021/2022 performances.
