Tottenham could loan Jack Clarke back to Leeds for the coming season after signing him this week.
The 18-year-old will become their first signing since January 2018 when he joins in an £8.5million move.
But Tottenham will let him return to Elland Road and work under Mauricio Pochettino’s mentor Marcelo Bielsa for another season.

Clarke has just four league starts to his name after his breakthrough season at Leeds.
Leeds will also tie up loan moves for Wolves winger Helder Costa, Jack Harrison and Brighton defender Ben White next week.
Tottenham were keen on signing Clarke in January but were unable to get him out of Elland Road as Leeds pushed for promotion to the Premier League.
During his 25 appearances for the Elland Road outfit last season, Clarke scored twice and created as many assists.
Pochettino is keen to make a number of additions to his squad this month with Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele his priority signing.
