Tottenham complete rare signing then loan £9m star back to Leeds

Tottenham have completed the signing of Leeds winger Jack Clarke for an initial fee of £9million, with the player heading back to Elland Road on loan.

The 18-year-old has agreed a contract with Spurs until 2023 and has become the club’s first signing in 517 days.

Born in York, the winger came through the ranks at Leeds and made his breakthrough last season under Marcelo Bielsa, playing 25 times and scoring two goals as the Whites lost out in the semi-finals of the Championship Play-Offs.

The teenager was also named the Leeds United Young Player of the Year for his performances.

Clarke said: “I’m delighted to join Tottenham and in the short term I’ll be giving my all to hopefully help Leeds win promotion.”

Leeds also have sell-on clause on the player, believed to be 20%.
