According to The Mirror, Leeds United have informed Tottenham Hotspur that they will have to come up with a bid of £20m in order to sign Jack Clarke.
Clarke, 18, was named Leeds’ Young Player of the Season after making 25 appearances in all competitions for the club during the 2018-19 campaign.
A versatile winger, the teenager netted twice in the Championship last term and is viewed as one of the best talents outside of the Premier League.
According to The Mirror, Leeds would sell to Tottenham this summer but the top-flight outfit have been quoted £20m, and a number of Spurs fans have been on social media offering their views.

Whilst plenty would like to have Clarke at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next season, others are not so keen on the idea of a swoop, due mainly to what is a huge price tag for someone with so little senior experience.
A selection of the Twitter reaction in relation to a potential move for the York-born attacker can be seen below:
It’s a deal

not worth it

20 million is fair imo. Got a great future but would be buying a class player on brink of 1st team for reasonably cheap in this market. And good money for Leeds to invest.

I think £15m is fair. It’s a sellers market though so Leeds entitled to get the best price. Good player this season, could improve rapidly at Spurs.

£15m plus add-ons is a fair price, although as a buying club, if Leeds dig their heels in on the asking price, we can’t be seen to squabble over 5-10m variance
