Marcelo Bielsa was Leeds manager last season where he inherited an ageing squad but revitalized it with youth- club’s own. Jack Clarke, the 2000 born winger was part of this unsung youth revolution at Leeds and until recently he was odds on with the bookies to join Spurs. Jack Clarke to Spurs was odds on but now all betting on this move is suspended because the deal is considered done.
Who is Tottenham transfer favourite Jack Clarke
As of now, Jack Clarke is a Leeds United player. He is 18 year old and plays as a Left Winger who is also able to deployed on the right. York born Clarke was promoted from the Leeds U-18s last season and took his chance in the Championship with both hands. Even though he didn’t play every game but was involved throughout the campaign, until Leeds lost the play-offs.
Since then he has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs who consider him one of the best English prospects in his age group and want to secure his signature as one for the future. Some reports claimed he could start for Spurs, but are wide off the mark as the team would want to challenge for top honours in England and Europe.
In 22 games last season, Clarke scored only twice (assisting two) but his appearances have convinced the scouts from Tottenham about his high ceiling.
When a fan asked Betfair the odds for Clarke to Spurs, he was first told to wait for a response before they declared ‘this deal is done’ and rejected any bets. Prior to that, Jack Clarke was odds-on to wear a Spurs shirt next season.
