Tottenham Hotspur are set to complete the signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds United in the coming days.

The two clubs have allegedly agreed on a fee in the region of £8.5m with additional add-ons that could rise to £13m. (BBC)

Clarke has reportedly completed his medical at Tottenham following permission granted from Leeds.

Following the completion of the deal, he will remain in North London unless the Club decides to send him back on loan at Leeds. (Standard)

With the deal expected to be announced at some point over the next few days, we look at four players who played for both Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur, along with one who is about to make it five.

Born in Leeds, it seemed fitting that Aaron Lennon would join the Leeds United youth academy. Lennon was part of the academy from 2001, before he turned professional in 2003.

In August that year, Lennon would become the youngest player to appear in the Premier League, coming off the bench to make his debut against his future club, Tottenham Hotspur.

Due to his age, Lennon was never a regular starter at the club. That was until the departure of John Oster, which put Lennon as a regular member of the starting eleven.

Lennon’s tenure at Leeds ended in 2005, when the club decided to move him on due to financial difficulties. He joined Spurs in 2005, where he would make 266 appearances across ten years, cementing his place as a club legend.

  1. Willem Korsten springs to mind immediately. Wouldn’t surprise me if there were others. Perhaps if you researched for more than 5 minutes you might be more reliable. Doh!
