North London giants Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly closing on the signing of Leeds United midfielder Jack Clarke this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Leeds United are on the verge of completing a deal for the player whom they revived their interest in this summer.

Spurs were keen on a deal for him during the winter transfer window in January but nothing concrete came out of their interest.

Earlier this summer, it was revealed that Spurs have revived their interest in the player and that he could move to North London this summer.

Both parties (Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United) have been in talks over a deal for the player in the last few days.

It was revealed that Spurs will pay £8.5m for the young player including add-ons.

Jack Clarke was instrumental to the impressive run of Leeds United last season.

He was an important player for the former Champions League semi-finalists last season.

Jack Clarke made 24 appearances for Leeds United who finished the season in third place to secure a spot in the playoffs.

Leeds United went on to qualify for the playoffs in the bid to secure Premier League pro only for them to be eliminated by Derby County in the semifinal of the competition.
