The rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target is the son of a former Newcastle United player.

Newcastle United fans are reacting to reports linking the teenage Magpies midfielder, Bobby Clark, is wanted by a string of other clubs including Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham have emerged as frontrunners to sign the 14-year-old, whose father is the former Newcastle midfielder Lee Clark, should the player and his family decide that his future is brighter away from St James’ Park.

The newspaper claims Clark Jnr is rated by the Newcastle manager, Steve Bruce, as the club’s best schoolboy prospect, and would prefer to stay with his hometown club.

And seemingly it is not just inside of Newcastle that Clark is highly rated, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Bayern Munich also being credited with interest.

But what are those of a Magpies persuasion saying about the speculation?

This is the reaction on Twitter…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tottenham have played a significant role in the development of a number of young English players in recent years, notably Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Harry Kane.

But it remains to be seen how Spurs’ recent appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager will affect that.

And Clark may take inspiration from two recent graduates of the Newcastle academy system, Sean and Matty Longstaff, who are currently thriving at first-team level.

Newcastle fans – could Tottenham Hotspur or someone else prise Clark from St James’ Park?
