Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds United. The 18-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with Spurs and will spend the 2019/20 campaign back at Elland Road. Clarke is coming off the back of a breakthrough season at Leeds where he made 25 appearances in all competitions and contributed four goals.

According to BBC Sport, Spurs have paid £10m for the wide-man and will make further payments based on specific clauses. Clarke is Tottenham’s first signing for 18 months, with Lucas Moura’s arrival from Paris Saint-Germain being their previous acquisition. Supporters will have to wait a year before seeing the new addition in action, however.

Nevertheless, Clarke has real potential. In 814 minutes of Championship football last season, he created 17 chances, 27 successful dribbles (56%), completed 76% of his passes, whipped in 28 crosses with 14% accuracy and made 13 tackles. He’ll have stiff competition from Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son in the Tottenham first-team, however.

Mauricio Pochettino will be the ideal manager to develop Clarke into a senior-level talent, having quickly introduced Dele Alli to the first-team when he arrived from MK Dons in 2015, so the 18-year-old could have a bright future. As for potential shirt numbers, No. 13, No. 19, No. 26, No. 28, No. 29, No. 30, No. 31 and No. 32 are available.

  • Clarke’s a good signing but imo it is best for him to have that extra year back at Leeds, good luck Clarke.
    WoW Ndombele simply WoW.
    Now get Fernandes
    ( 4.3.2.1 ) Formation
    Lloris GK
    Rose LWB
    Vertonghen CB
    Toby CB
    Tripps RWB
    Ndombele MF
    Winks MF
    Fernandes MF
    Son AM
    Dele AM
    Kane S

    SUBS Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Davies, Moura, KW.Peters, Sissoko.

    Based on Eriksen leaving if not, imo benched for a while. This would be some team Dele can play Eriksen’s role imo, but not many teams could handle the pace, muscle and trickery of that team going forward. Also with Fernandes and Ndombele throwing in tackles just in front of a strong defence not many getting past them either.

  • I’m just going on what players we have now with exception of Fernandes only because I mentioned I wanted us to get him in. I do think we need a more solid RB and he would start, imo Tripps to stay as second choice instead of KWP, If luck enough we got Lo Celso as well then he would be a sub also. Sessegnon would be a good buy Sancho would be great though lol.

    My dream transfer window. Could you imagine this team wearing Lilywhite this season.
    IN’s
    Ndombele 65 mil, Fernandes 60 mil, Lo Celso 60 mil, Danilo 25 mil and Sessegnon 15 mil. = Approx 235 mil

    OUT’s
    Eriksen 80 mil, Aurier 15 mil, Carter-Vickers 15 mil, Jensen 8 mil, Wanyama 20 mil, Nkoudou 10mil and Onomah 15 mil. = approx 163 mil. Costing an approximant out lay of 72 mil pounds.
