Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Marcus Edwards is training with Brentford.

The 20-year-old is hoping to earn a deal with the Championship side, according to a report by Football.London.

Edwards, who is an England Under-20 international, is entering the final year of his contract at Spurs so it is yet to be known whether his potential move to Griffin Park will be a permanent or loan transfer.

The Bees have been busy this summer bolstering their squad ahead of next season and could add some more creativity and depth to their midfield department by bringing in Edwards.

Thomas Frank’s side have signed Pontus Jansson, David Raya, Ethan Pinnock, Christian Norgaard and Mathias Jensen so far in this transfer window and have not stopped there.

Edwards has played a single game in the Championship during a brief stint at Norwich City in the 2017/18 season.

He spent the last campaign on loan in the Dutch Eredivisie with Excelsior and enjoyed playing some regular first team football.

Edwards joined Spurs’ academy at the age of eight and rose up through the youth ranks with the London side. He made his debut for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in a League Cup fixture against Gillingham in September 2016 but that is his only appearance for them to date.

He could be worth a punt by Brentford as he is young and has the potential to develop into a good player in the right environment.
