Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Leeds’ winger Jack Clarke for the majority of the summer transfer window (Yorkshire Evening Post), but a deal has not yet been reached.
Leeds are said to want £20m for the 18-year-old this transfer window, a fee Spurs are not willing to pay (Sunday Mirror – May 26 page 69). Tottenham are said to have already had a £10m bid turned down (Football London).
Clarke only started four matches for Leeds last campaign, but came off the bench 21 further times, playing on either wing.
HITC have now suggested that Leeds could ask for a Tottenham player in return, instead of commanding a huge fee for the teenager.
The report puts forwards Cameron Carter-Vickers, Juan Foyth on loan, or Josh Onomah as potential bargaining chips for Spurs in the Clarke deal.
Foyth was actually linked with Leeds back in the January transfer window (AS).
Spurs Web Opinion:
I can’t see Cameron Carter-Vickers breaking into the Spurs first team, especially with Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth at the club. I would suggest that if Spurs can use him as a chip to secure a transfer, that would be good business. With regards to Foyth, I think he is past the point of needing a loan move. Poch is happy to use him regularly and he is developing well in the Tottenham first team. As for Onomah, I am convinced he is not good enough and Spurs should get rid.
