Tottenham youngster Marcus Edwards has returned early from his loan spell at Norwich City for personal reasons, Canaries boss Daniel Farke has confirmed.
Edwards played just six minutes of football for Norwich in a 2-0 defeat to Fulham last month.
Spurs fans had been excited when Edwards secured a loan move to the Championship back in January, thinking he would get plenty of chances to impresses ahead of a possible chance in Tottenham’s first team.

But things seemed wrong from the start. Edwards wasn’t include in any match-day squads upon joining Norwich, with Farke claiming he needed to work on his mentality and attitude before being considered for selection.
After Norwich’s 1-1 draw at Sunderland on Tuesday, Farke confirmed Edwards has returned to Spurs “for personal reasons”.
Those reasons could coincide with the fact he was getting little to no first-team experience at Carrow Road, or it could be something completely unrelated – nobody seems to know at the moment.
What we do know is that Edwards appears to be running out of chances. Once compared to Lionel Messi by Mauricio Pochettino, the 19-year-old might end up failing to make the grade at Tottenham.
