Leeds fans much happier about Clarke departure

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.

It was previously thought that the initial sum that the Whites would receive for the 18-year-old would be £8.5m. This first report from The Sun caused uproar amongst the fanbase.

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…
