Tottenham have been linked with Leeds United starlet Jack Clarke again but the Londoners face competition from Manchester United and Manchester City, according to the Sun.

Earlier in January, reports claimed Spurs and Manchester City are interested in Clarke, who made his first Championship start against Derby County this month.

The 18-year-old played a key role in Leeds’ 2-0 victory over Derby and has made an impact on multiple occasions from the bench this term.

The Sun is now claiming Manchester United have entered the race to sign Clarke, while Tottenham and City continue to keep tabs on the teenager.

However, it is believed Leeds are confident they can keep hold of one of their most promising young players in the current transfer window, despite a £12m fee being mooted.

That’s a lot of money for a player who has only just broken into a Championship team, but Clarke’s talent and the fact he is English mean buying clubs will have to pay a premium price to get him.

The chance to work with Mauricio Pochettino or Pep Guardiola may be too good an opportunity for Clarke to turn down.

He’s also a Leeds lad and his agent is Ian Harte whose a bit of a Leeds legend, if he does leave it will be in the summer if we don’t get promoted, as we’re no longer run by a tinpot owner.
