Clarke, who came through the youth system at Leeds, is widely regarded as one of the brightest young talents in English football.
The versatile attacker has scored twice in 12 Championship appearances this season, whilst he starred in Leeds’ 2-0 win over Derby County last time out.
Palace have seemingly made an attempt to land Clarke, but it would be a huge surprise if Leeds allowed the wonderkid to leave.
The Leeds fans have caught wind of the rumours involving Palace and it would be fair to say that they are not overly concerned.
Palace would be able to offer Premier League football right now, but Leeds are going very well at the top of the Championship as they look for a return to the top flight.
And it would also be fair to say that, with respect to Palace, Leeds are the bigger club.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Leeds fans can be seen below:

Why on earth would he even want to go to Crystal Palace?

Not even worth a response

Too right he’s going nowhere. We are Leeds present not Leeds past. Getting rid of players again. No chance.
