Tottenham winger Marcus Edwards was an unfortunate omission from the club's US tour squad.

The 19-year-old's career has not hit the heights he hoped by now and being left off the club's pre-season tour is an ominous sign.

Edwards is at least showing his support for one of his teammates who did make the cut.

Edwards' responded to Georges-Kevin N'Koudou's Instagram message celebrating his inclusion on tour.

The teenager's simple message to N'Koudou read: "My bro."

Fans replied to Edwards' message, with one commenting: "keep working hard, keep fighting bruz we all believe you’ll be a spurs legend #coys", and another writing, "why ain't you there?"

Edwards had a disappointing loan spell at Norwich last season and his star has waned since he impressed on pre-season tour with Spurs in 2016.

His attitude has been called into question, but in this case, he is not publicly sulking about his exclusion from the Spurs tour and sounds pleased for struggling teammate N'Koudou.

Tottenham fans will hope his case is not irredeemable and he knuckles down to succeed in North London.
