No formal offer but Tottenham step up interest in £10m Leeds ace

Tottenham have not yet made a formal offer for Leeds starlet Jack Clarke, but have shown a significant interest in the player.

Having missed out on promotion after a play-off semi-final defeat to Derby, Leeds are expected to cash in on Clarke – who impressed in the first half of the season, but faded after suffering an illness in February.

Recent reports have suggested that Spurs, along with Liverpool, were monitoring the 18-year-old, but a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post claims that there has not yet been an actual approach from the Premier League side.

Clarke is under contract at Elland Road until 2021, but chairman Andrea Radrizzani has warned of a difficult summer ahead after the play-off heartbreak.

After two transfer windows of zero signings, Spurs are expected to be fairly active this summer and view Clarke, who can play on the right or left wing, as a good back up option to the likes of Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura.

Tottenham chief Mauricio Pochettino also has an impressive record of improving young players, having overseen the progress of the likes Harry Winks, Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth in north London.

Spurs, meanwhile, are reportedly leading the race to sign Real Madrid outcast Dani Ceballos this summer. Read the full story here…
