For some time now we’ve followed the Marcus Edwards contract saga and it looks as if there’s finally some good news for Spurs fans.
The 17-year old had been stalling on signing a professional contract with the club and would have been free to leave next summer. Thankfully the very reliable Twitter account @TottenhamAcademy has reported that Edwards has put pen to paper on a two-year contract.
Signed. Two-year deal.

The rumour that the offer promised Edwards some game time is a measure of just how highly-rated the youngster is by the club and it will be interesting to see how he develops from here. Watch him in action below.
