Tottenham fans react as Marcus Edwards joins Vitoria on permanent deal

Marcus Edwards played one senior game for Tottenham.

Tottenham Hotspur have sold Marcus Edwards to Vitoria on a permanent deal, the club’s website has confirmed. After coming through the ranks at Tottenham, Edwards departs to pursue his career in the Portuguese top-flight.

The 20-year-old played one match for Spurs, coming on as a substitute against Gillingham in the EFL Cup. It was around this time that Mauricio Pochettino compared him to Lionel Messi.

But Edwards has never lived up to the hype and he now departs without any further Spurs appearances to his name. The diminutive left-footed midfielder spent time on loan at Norwich City (cut short after one game) and Excelsior.

Last season, he scored two goals and provided four assists in the Eredivisie for Dutch side Excelsior. But this was not enough to convince Pochettino to give him a Spurs lifeline.

Upon leaving Tottenham, Edwards took to Twitter to share a farewell message with the fans. The England U20 midfielder said: “After 14 years at @SpursOfficial it’s the right time for me to start the next phase of my career. Thank you to everyone who’s helped me get this far, the learning process never stops and I’m excited to continue at  @VitoriaSC1922“.

Here are some tweets reacting to Edwards’ departure.
