Newcastle are keeping tabs on Spurs youngster Marcus Edwards, but face competition from RB Leipzig and Ajax.

Chronicle Live report that the player is wanted by all three clubs as he closes in on his exit from Spurs.

The report claims that Edwards is ready to leave Tottenham in a bid to find first-team football elsewhere.

He becomes the latest young English star to be linked with a move to Germany, with the Bundesliga quickly becoming the hotbed of talent for young footballers.

Newcastle have kept close tabs on the player, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Norwich City.

Edwards was unable to make a mark in the Championship, making just a handful of appearances and saw his loan spell cut short.

Questions were raised about the player’s attitude during his stint away from the club, despite once being dubbed as a ‘mini Messi’ by Mauricio Pochettino.
