Excelsior has confirmed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur youngster Marcus Edwards on a season-long loan deal. 

The nineteen-year-old forward, who is nicknamed “The Mini-Messi” in England trained with Excelsior on Thursday and the club has confirmed his signing on a year-long loan.

Edwards has been playing at Tottenham Hotspur since he was eight and signed his first professional contract with the London based club in 2016. He made his first-team debut that year against Gillingham in a cup game but that has been his only appearance so far. Last season he moved to Norwich City on loan but again only made one appearance.

The 19-year-old is now looking to kick-start his career in Rotterdam.
