Edson Silva signed for Tottenham Hotspur F.C. from PSV Eindhoven shortly before the 2004/05 season got underway. Tottenham's Sporting Director Frank Arnesen had signed him for PSV after spotting him playing for Portugal's youth teams.
The attacking midfielder signed a one-year deal with an option to extend that at the end of the season.
Unfortunately, he did not even reach then, leaving Spurs in January 2005 to join Den Haag. After scoring 3 goals with Den Haag, Egyptian side Zamalek signed him.
He has played 4 matches for Zamalek scoring 1 goal in AL Koroum.
After an unfortune season with Zamalek, Potuguese Side Maritimo decided to sign him for a fee that extended to 230,000 $. In the beginning of 2007 he was signed by Romanian Liga I side UT Arad.
He is married to a girl from Switzerland from which he has 3 children.
