Name: Marcus Edwards
Club: Tottenham Hotspur
Made Senior Debut?: Yes (Tottenham Hotspur)
Current National Level: England U20 International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Last season Edwards was sent out on loan to Excelsior in the Eridivise. After a slow start being used as a bit part player, Edwards managed to force his way into the starting eleven and he didn’t look back. Averaging the most dribbles per game (3.2), more than likes of Ziyech, Neres, Bergwijn and Lozano, Edwards was always exciting to watch. He appeared in 25 games, starting 19 of them, scoring 2 and setting up 4.
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – Back at Tottenham this season, it would seem that working under Mauricio Pochettino and his staff would be the perfect combination for the youngster. However, rumours of Edwards not having the best ‘attitude’ have recently seen him training with Brentford United. Marcus really needs to progress on last season, and a loan or permanent move to the Championship may be just what he needs.
