Norwich City has completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur teenage sensation Marcus Edwards on a loan deal for the rest of the season. The Canaries have confirmed on their official website that the highly rated Spurs youngster will join the club on a temporary basis for the remainder of the campaign. The 19-year-old will join his new teammates immediately but will be ineligible for Wednesday’s FA Cup clash at Stamford Bridge as he was not registered with the Canaries before the first meeting between the teams.
Chelsea were held to a 0-0 draw at Carrow Road by a determined Norwich City team which is why the clubs will face off on a replay on Wednesday night. The London born midfielder is a product of Spurs’ academy and made his debut for the North London outfit in September 2016 when he came off the bench during a 5-0 triumph over Gillingham in the EFL Cup.
Edwards has already represented England at various youth levels and was part of the Young Lions squad which won the European Under-19 Championships last summer. In an interview after completing his switch to Carrow Road, Edwards expressed his delight and was quoted to have said, “I’m really excited and can’t wait to help the team.
“I like to get on the ball, take people on, create things and score goals. When I spoke to the manager, he made me feel welcome and explained how he wanted to play.”
Norwich City manager Daniel Farke said, “Marcus is a young player with huge potential.
“He is rated as one of the biggest talents in English football but will need some time to adapt to a new surrounding and to the physical game in the Championship.
“Again, it’s a sign of our way to work with young and talented players.”
The Canaries are currently in 13th place in the English Championship table with a tally of 37 points in 27 league matches. They are six points away from a playoff place going into the second half of the campaign so the addition of Edwards could give them a massive lift in getting some favourable results in the coming months.
The 19-year-old has scored 8 goals and made 5 assists in 16 matches for the Tottenham Hotspur Under 23 team this season. He undoubtedly has a lot of potentials and could improve as a player at Carrow Road. It remains to be seen what the future holds for this bright young English prospect and whether he can break into the Spurs first-team next season.
