Tottenham Hotspur close to signing Leeds winger – report
Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds United, according to reports
Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on the signing of Leeds United winger Jack Clarke, according to reports in the British media.
Sky Sports is reporting that the Lilywhites are keen to land the 18-year-old after having also shown interest in him in the January transfer window.
The same story claims that discussions between the two clubs have progressed over the last few days to leave Spurs close to completing a deal for the teenager.
It is also claimed that a fee between the two clubs, believed to be worth around £8.5m, has already been agreed.
Clarke was a regular fixture in the Leeds United team last season and he made 25 appearances in all competitions last term as they reached the Championship play-offs, and he netted two goals.
Tottenham are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.
The Lilywhites finished in fourth place in the Premier League table and were the runners-up in the Champions League behind Liverpool FC last term.
Spurs are still aiming to try and win their first major trophy since Pochettino’s appointment at the club.
