According to The Sun, Manchester City are lining up a January swoop for Leeds United youngster Jack Clarke.
Clarke penned his first professional contract with Leeds in 2017, and has developed into a first-team star at the age of 18.
A number of Premier League clubs are interested in Clarke, according to The Sun, but City are believed to lead the race ahead of the January transfer window.
Playmaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
Clarke has played 45 minutes in each of Leeds’ last two Championship matches, and came off the bench to register an assist in the 1-0 win over Sheffield United last time out.
Capable of playing in a number of different positions in the final third of the field, Clarke is a very exciting talent, and it is not a surprise to learn that there is interest from the Premier League.
The Leeds fans are absolutely desperate to keep hold of Clarke though, and a selection of their Twitter reaction can be seen below:
No way. Stay at Leeds
