If reports are to be believed, Tottenham Hotspur’s year and a half transfer drought may soon be over, with one new addition said to be having his medical today.
The Guardian have reported that Leeds United winger, Jack Clarke, is on the verge of becoming at Spurs player.
However, in this modern transfer market, the fees are not always what they seem. Transfers often include extra clauses and add-ons on top of the up-front valuation. So, how much are Tottenham really paying for Clarke?
The Guardian say that Daniel Levy has agreed an initial fee of £10m for the 18-year-old, a figure that could rise to £11.5m if all add-ons are met.
But, it doesn’t stop there, as the Daily Mail claim that Leeds United have insisted on one extra clause in the deal.
The report says that Leeds will have first refusal on the player if Tottenham decide to ever send him out on loan.
Is this a good deal for Spurs?
