Tottenham Hotspur’s year and a half wait for a new signing appears to be on the verge of ending, as Jack Clarke has completed his medical in North London (Standard).
The medical tests were carried out on Thursday and are thought to have been particularly thorough in Clarke’s case.
The Leeds United winger collapsed in the dugout back in February while watching his side play Middlesborough, before being rushed to hospital.
It was suspected that he had suffered a seizure, but was released just hours after being admitted.
Tottenham and Leeds have already agreed a fee of £10m for the 18-year-old, which could rise to £11.5m with add-ons (Guardian).
The contract is also said to include a sell-on clause, as well as first refusal for Leeds if Clarke goes out on loan in the future (Standard).
Clarke was a standout performer for Leeds last season, earning his first start in January, scoring two goals, setting two up, and appearing 25 times.
Spurs Web Opinion:
I’m very excited to see what Clarke can do as a fringe player next season, as I can’t see Spurs loaning him back out. Let’s give this lad some game time and a chance to impress Pochettino. £10m also sounds like a bargain for a young up-and-coming English player in this current market.
