Leeds United fans on Twitter have been admiring the club’s work in the transfer window after they set a £20 million pricetag on Jack Clarke.
Just last week Tottenham had reportedly bid half that amount for the young winger, but now the Yorkshire outfit have made it clear that they will need to cough up a considerable amount to secure his services.
This means that Leeds are either going to get a hefty fee for the 18-year-old, or they will be able to utilise one of the most talented youngsters in England for another season where he could help them get promoted.
And the sentiment amongst supporters is clear on social media. They almost unanimously believe that the price put on Clarke’s head would indicate a brilliant deal for the Whites.
The youngster has played less than 900 minutes of league football in his career, and if Victor Orta can get £20 million for him, it would be a masterstroke.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
How’s it controversial? I’d have taken £10m? £20m is daylight robbery.

Got a lot of potential and always a shame to see academy players leave but £20m could get us up next season if used wisely
