Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be eager to sign Jack Clarke from Leeds United this summer, but they are struggling to get a deal done.

Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left frustrated with claims in the Yorkshire Evening Post that they are unlikely to pay Leeds United’s asking price for Jack Clarke.

Tottenham have been tracking the Leeds youngster for much of the summer so far, but have failed to get a deal over the line.

It was thought that Spurs would make a bid for Clarke after tying up some more high profile targets.

 

However, it is now believed that Leeds asking price for Clarke has put Spurs off.

With Tottenham fans desperate for a signing, the news has frustrated supporters, who feel that they should just pay Leeds what they want.

Clarke appears to be a real talent, but his form towards the back end of the campaign at Elland Road may have given Spurs some second thoughts.

Clarke would be unlikely to walk straight into Tottenham’s starting line-up, but could be a great option to utilise from the bench next season, if they were to pay Leeds what they want.
