The right winger is recognised as one of the best upcoming talents at the north London club and the academy graduate is being tipped for a big first-team role int he future.
However, it is understood that Mauricio Pochettino’s side have made the huge decision to send him out on loan for the first time in his career to experience senior football.
Edwards has just one senior appearance under his belt for Spurs which came last season in the League Cup, but is still well recognised at Spurs for being a future star.

The technically gifted winger is a well balanced player that has an eye for goal, incredible pace and brilliant skill.
He has kicked off the new season with two goals in three games for Spurs’ Under-23s side and many fans want to see him involved in the first-team squad on a more regular basis.
Football Insider verdict:
Spurs fans should be thrilled if they manage to find a suitor for Edwards on deadline day and they could closely follow his progress out on loan. Harry Kane is a shining example that the loan system can work well and Edwards could be fast-tracked into the senior set-up if he achieves good things out on loan. Pochettino should look to send the wide man to a Championship club, where he will be tested physically and it should improve his game hugely. The England Under-19 international has the technical ability, but is currently just short of forcing his way into a competitive Spurs squad. He will come back a year later much stronger and more knowledgeable, making a loan move a very exciting prospect.
