Leeds United fans on Twitter are much happier after Phil Hay confirmed that the club would be receiving an initial fee of around £10m for Jack Clarke.
The Whites still aren’t getting close to the £20m they wanted earlier this summer, but supporters are pleased that it is still a higher fee than what was originally reported.
It’s hard to argue that getting £10m for a player who has started just four games in his entire career isn’t a good bit of business.
Of course, the teenager has potential, but there is always the risk that he won’t reach the heights that are expected of him.
With United apparently working on a sell before they buy policy, this deal may allow the Yorkshire side to begin bringing in new faces.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
Good deal for an impact sub who didn’t play a full season. Let’s get on with it

IMO thats not bad for a player who has started a handful of championship games. Paying for potential, but not guaranteed to realise that potential.

We’re finally learning. Great deal all round

Alot better than the £8m that was being mentioned. Hopefully this can trigger the players coming in.

Good deal for #lufc not proven over a whole season and struggled after the virus. Yes he has potential but we can’t wait for that. Need immediate impact, hope the moneys invested.

Gotta say I think that’s a decent deal for him, particularly with the add ons ????

10m for an impact sub is great business
