Tottenham Hotspur have announced the signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds United on a four-year deal. (Tottenham Hotspur)
However, the 18-year-old will return to Leeds on a season-long loan to gain more first team experience under the watchful eye on Marcelo Bielsa. (Leeds United)
The deal is believed to be in the region of £10m with the possibility for it to rise slightly with add-ons. (Guardian)
Clarke spoke to the club’s website about his delight to join Spurs:
“I’m delighted to join Tottenham and in the short term I’ll be giving my all to hopefully help Leeds win promotion,” he said. (Tottenham)
517 days without a signing a single player has finally come to an end for Spurs fans and to say they were pleased is an understatement.
The announcement has been waited on for the past few days now although the rumours suggested Clarke would return on loan for a season.
Here are some of the best reactions:
