Phil Hay issues update as Tottenham chase Leeds man



Tottenham remain keen on Leeds United winger Jack Clarke, however they could be priced out of a move for the talented teenager.

The 18-year-old enjoyed a real breakthrough year under Marcelo Bielsa, featuring 24 times for the first-team in the league and impressing with his dribbling ability and pace.

Therefore, it was no surprise to see a host of Premier League sides linked with the player, with Spurs thought to be the leading contenders for his signature and are said to have bid £10m for him last month.

And, Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay confirmed the serious interest they have in Clarke when responding to a Whites fan on Twitter, although he suggested a deal may not get done because of the fee the Championship side will want.

They’re very interested but not convinced they’ll stretch to Leeds’ valuation.”

Reports have emerged revealing that Leeds will want £20m before they consider cashing in on their exciting academy graduate who would hope to become a key player for Bielsa next season if he does stay at Elland Road.

The Verdict

This is the right stance from Leeds and they need to stand their ground on this over the coming weeks.

They are under no pressure to sell Clarke and are right to ask for big-money for the youngster when you consider his potential.

For too long the Whites sold their better players for modest fees, so it’s now about only doing a deal that suits the club and going from Hay’s comments that is what they are doing.
