Leeds United have negotiated two key aspects to the deal which will bring Jack Clarke to Tottenham Hotspur.

Phil Hay, who is the former journalist for Leeds United at the Yorkshire Evening Post has revealed on Twitter that the Championship outfit will see a fee paid by Spurs in the region of £10million which includes a clause that Leeds will receive a share of the money if Spurs ever sell the 18-year-old.

They have also negotiated an agreement that they will have the first option to bring him back to Elland Road on loan if Spurs decide to make him available.

The young winger is said to be in London today to undergo a medical ahead of completing his move to the Premier League side (Football Insider).

Clarke made 25 appearances for Marco Bielsa’s side last season with 20 coming from the bench and he provided two assists and found the back of the net on two occasions.

His impending arrival seems somewhat of a return of Spurs buying young English talent following in the footsteps of the likes of Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Aaron Lennon.
