Tottenham Hotspur have made their first new signing since January 2018 after completing a £10 million deal for Leeds United’s Jack Clarke.

The winger has signed a four-year contract but has immediately returned to Elland Road on a season-long loan.

Tottenham decided to loan him back to Leeds so he can continue his development for another year. He went straight back to the Championship club after signing his contract to start pre-season training.

The 18-year-old becomes the first signing made by Mauricio Pochettino’s men since they signed Lucas Moura from Paris St Germain one-and-a-half years ago.

Clarke said: “I’m delighted to join Tottenham and in the short term I’ll be giving my all to hopefully help Leeds win promotion.”

Leeds stated on their website: “Everyone at Leeds United would like to thank Jack for his efforts whilst at the club and we wish him every success for the future.”

Last year, he made 25 appearances for Leeds, but only started five games. His performances led him to be named the club’s Young Player of the Year.
