Tottenham complete Jack Clarke signing & loan him back to Leeds United

Jack Harrison may well replace Leeds' Jack Clarke

There is little doubt in anyone's mind that the arrival of Helder Costa from Premier League side Wolves is a cracking piece of business for the Whites.

Tottenham smashed their club transfer record on Tuesday signing of French global midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for a fee that could rise to Sh8.1 billion (70 million euros, $79 million, £63 million).

Spurs paid €60 million (RM280.6 million) for the 22-year-old, with incentives worth an extra €10 million, eclipsing the club-record fee of £42 million they paid for defender Davinson Sanchez in 2017.

However, Spurs' spending was not finished as they also added sought-after Olympique Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele to their squad, with the player reportedly also being wanted by United.

Costa is set to join the Whites on loan, while Leeds are hoping to secure an option to sign the attacker in a permanent deal.

The Angola-born winger made 25 Premier League appearances for Wolves last term, scoring once, and was a key member of the team that helped the club to promotion from the Championship in 2017-18.

The former Leeds' wing back will rejoin the Yorkshire club on loan for the 2019-20 Championship season.

The duo formed an impressive partnership last season, though it was often disrupted by injury.

"Last season was my first at senior level so I wasn't really expecting to come in and play as much as I did, but it was good for me just to get used to professional football".

Clarke has returned to Leeds on loan for the 2019/20 season.
