Tottenham's contract talks with Marcus Edwards have reportedly hit an impasse.

According to The Guardian, Tottenham teenager Marcus Edwards has stalled on a new contract with the club, causing some concern at White Hart Lane.

Since Mauricio Pochettino's arrival as Spurs boss, we have seen a host of young players step up and become first-team regulars in the Tottenham side.

Players like Eric Dier, Tom Carroll, Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason, Dele Alli, Joshua Onomah and Harry Kane have all featured under Pochettino, giving Spurs a youthful side full of potential.

There are a number of other young players coming up through the ranks at Spurs, such as Cameron Carter-Vickers, Harry Winks, Shayon Harrison and Kaziah Sterling, but playmaker Marcus Edwards is one of their most highly-rated youngsters.

Edwards, 17, is a diminutive attacking midfielder, has been with the club since the age of eight, and has been tipped to have a bright future at White Hart Lane.

However, his contract expires at the end of the season, and The Guardian report that, despite Spurs offering Edwards a new deal back in December, they have yet to receive any kind of response from Edwards, with the play seemingly stalling over a new deal.

It's stated that some of Tottenham's Premier League rivals are now hoping to poach Edwards this summer, as Spurs valiantly attempt to keep one of their young talents at White Hart Lane.

Should Edwards stay at Tottenham or move on?
