EXCLUSIVE: Leeds, Fulham, Swansea in hunt for former Wednesday star

Date published: Tuesday 7th August 2018 9:55

Fulham, Leeds United and Swansea City are leading the chase to sign free agent midfielder Sean Clare, TEAMtalk can exclusively reveal.

The 21-year-old left Sheffield Wednesday last month when his contract expired at Hillsborough, after he rejected the chance to stay.

Aston Villa had tied up a deal, but their financial issues earlier this summer saw the deal fall through.

Whilst Villa remain keen, their failure to push through the move has seen rivals step in, and now a number of other clubs have stepped in to hold talks with Clare.

The 21-year-old Clare came through the youth ranks at Wednesday, after joining from the Nike Academy in 2016, but now he is set to leave after rejecting a new deal.

Because Clare is under 23, Wednesday will be due compensation, but it will be nowhere near Clare’s actual value.

Leeds have held a long-standing interest in Clare, and their need has increased following an injury sustained by Adam Forshaw that will see the midfielder sidelined for up to eight weeks.
