Jack Clarke – Player Profile
Jack Clarke signed for Tottenham Hotspur from Leeds United on the 2nd of July 2019 for a fee believed to be around the £10 million mark.
Clarke started his career at Leeds United at a young age and rose through the youth ranks and impressed for the U23s side at Elland Road. In 2017 then-manager Thomas Christiansen stated he would be putting Clarke in the first team squad for an EFL cup game despite not having a professional contract with the club. This alerted Europe’s elite clubs but Clarke ended up signing his first professional contract with his boyhood club.
Jack Clarke finally made hotly-anticipated first-team debut in October 2018, coming off the bench in a 1-1 draw with Brentford. His first career goal came just two months later, instigating a three-goal comeback against Aston Villa having been 2-0 down at half time.
His performances that season led to him being awarded Young Player of the Season.
With both clubs agreeing on terms, Clarke was made a Tottenham Hotspur player on in July 2019 and was immediately loaned back to Leeds United for the 19/20 season to continue his development. In January 2020, Clarke spent the remainder of the season at Queens Park Rangers on loan.
Clarke can play across the front three, either as a winger or as a striker. Known for his technical dribbling, pace and ability to beat defenders, Jack Clarke is sure to get Spurs fans on the edge of their seats.
