Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the club’s supposed interest in Leeds’ starlet Jack Clarke, who has been the subject of interest from the Eagles as they look to improve their depth on the wings and upfront.
The south London side were knocked back by the Championship leaders after an initial enquiry regarding the 18-year-old’s availability, but were told that he was not for sale.
Tottenham and Bournemouth are the other clubs interested in the teenager’s services, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side valuing Clarke in excess of £10m despite having just 13 competitive appearances under his belt.
Palace are desperate for attacking reinforcements having seen just one striker score in the league this season in Jordan Ayew, whilst Connor Wickham and Christian Benteke struggle for form and fitness – wingers Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend have been playing as makeshift strikers, which was also weakened the wide positions.
Let’s take a look at how Palace fans reacted to the news…

They will never sell imo. Hope we get him though.

Saw him play vs Derby on Sky on Friday night looks a great prospect.

Seems to be scoring and assisting quite a lot of late, be amazed if they let him go. Would be great on the left for us imo

After watching Jack Clarke on YouTube for 5 minutes and finding out he was born in 2000 , I’ve decided I really want Palace to sign him #cpfc

Made his debut for Leeds against Derby last Friday. Player of the match by a million miles – he’s going to be some talent!! #cpfc
