Tottenham transfer news: Spurs close to signing Leeds United winger Jack Clarke

Tottenham are set to complete their first signing in 18 months with the addition of Leeds winger Jack Clarke.

The 18-year-old broke into the Whites first-team last season and made 25 appearances as Leeds narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Sky Sports report that discussions between the two clubs have advanced in recent days and several elements of the deal are now agreed.

Spurs will pay £8.5m upfront to Leeds for the youngster, with add-ons potentially seeing the deal rise to £13m in total.

Tottenham are unlikely to loan Clarke back to the Sky Bet Championship club. Instead, he is expected to compete for a place in the first-team under Mauricio Pochettino.

Clarke will be Spurs' first signing since Lucas Moura signed from Paris Saint-Germain for a £25m fee on deadline day in January 2018.

Leeds are aiming to sign Wolves' Helder Costa as his replacement, with a loan move being negotiated with the Molineux club. A deal to bring Jack Harrison back on a temporary basis from Manchester City is expected to be confirmed this week.

In addition, Liverpool's Ryan Kent and Brighton's Ben White are targets for Marcelo Bielsa. Portsmouth forward Jamal Lowe is also being considered by Elland Road officials.
