Jack Clarke is on the verge of signing for Tottenham and the club’s manager is confident in the youngster’s ability to make a name for himself.

Jack Clarke is set to become Tottenham’s first signing in over a year. The Spurs’ last signing was of Lucas Moura who joined the club back in the January transfer window of 2018. And Pochettino says that he is certain that the young winger will be a huge success.

Jack Clarke has already undergone a rather thorough medical today. It was necessary since the youngster collapsed in the dugout in February while playing for Leeds United. However, the exciting winger has been given an all clear by the doctors.

According to Daily Star, the teenager is set to sign a long-term contract with the London giants and might even be loaned back to Leeds.

Clarke’s rapid rise is down to Marcelo Bielsa’s decision to give the youngster his debut against Brentford And he scored a brace in a 2-0 win over Derby County earlier this year.

Clarke can operate as a winger on both flanks and can even play as a striker. He made 25 appearances in the English Championship last season and is expected to get chances for Spurs as well if he stays.

Pochettino is confident that the youngster will make a name for himself. And Clarke also admits that his debut against Brentford was something he would never forget.

“When I first got told I was going to come on it didn’t hit me straight away, I just got ready straight away and got on the pitch as soon as I could,” said Clarke.

“There was a minute or so when the ball went out of play and Marcelo and Carlos (Coberan) told me to go out there and enjoy it and seize the moment.”
