Tottenham rebuff Championship interest in teenage starlet who has impressed Jose Mourinho



Tottenham will keep Jack Clarke at the club amid Championship interest

According to, Tottenham Hotspur have rebuffed interest from EFL Championship clubs in young winger Jack Clarke, who has impressed manager Jose Mourinho in training.

The 19-year-old Clarke joined Tottenham from Leeds United in July 2019 for a fee believed to be in the region of £10m plus add-ons. He joined after enjoying a breakthrough season in 2018/19 at Elland Road and was immediately loaned back to the club.

However, a lack of game time under Marcelo Bielsa saw Tottenham recall him from Leeds and loan him out to QPR. The Englishman didn’t play much for the R’s either, taking the field on just seven occasions before the 2019/20 season ended.

Back at Tottenham, Clarke hasn’t been a part of the matchday squads for any of our first-team matches so far this season. As a result, another loan move was mooted for the teenage winger, with Birmingham City touted to be his temporary destination for the 2020/21 season. (h/t Birmingham Live)

However, it is now being claimed that the winger has made quite the impression on manager Mourinho during training. Clarke featured quite prominently during the pre-season and was set to play for the first-team in the cancelled Carabao Cup meeting against Leyton Orient. (h/t

Clarke has taken the field twice for the reserves so far, scoring one goal as well.

Clarke has been included in the club’s UEFA Europa League squad, where he is expected to get playing minutes. Mourinho has him training with Tottenham favourite Gareth Bale during the international break, hoping that working with the Welshman will rub off on the teenager. (h/t

With less than ten days left for the domestic window to close, it remains to be seen what Mourinho decides on the future of the youngster.
