Marcus Edwards will seek to leave the club on a permanent basis this summer, according to the Guardian.

The player, once dubbed a “mini Messi” by Mauricio Pochettino, has come to the conclusion that he won’t be able to break into the first team, and wants a transfer to get more game time.

Fans on Twitter were lamenting what they see as a talent going to waste:


The 19-year-old performed well in both the UEFA Youth League and in Premier League 2 for the academy this season, but his loan spell at Norwich City didn’t go to plan.

After joining the Canaries in January, he made just one substitute appearance against Fulham, and his loan spell was cut short in April.

Some believe that the player has an attitude problem, and that could be the root cause of his progression stalling, but we’ll likely find out next season if he gets his wish and moves to another team.
