Phil Hay reveals Leeds ace has trained with club for the last time ahead of January

Leeds United loanee Jack Clarke has not exactly had the same impact in this campaign as he did last season.

The winger has only completed 19 minutes of action in the Championship in the 2-1 victory at Luton Town and has even failed to make the bench on numerous occasions already.

It comes as no surprise to see early suggestions that the winger will not be at the club in a weeks time once the January window opens.

The Athletic journalist Phil Hay revealed on Boxing Day morning that Clarke will be recalled by Tottenham once the January window opens up next week.

The reliable journalist claimed that the 19-year-old has already trained with the Whites for the final time in his career and will not take any part in upcoming games against both Preston North End and Birmingham.

It is expected that Clarke will return to Spurs to work with Jose Mourinho before trying to earn another loan move to the Championship at the end of the January.

It has to be said that this is no surprise at all, the winger has completed minimal minutes and has only made an impact in the under-23s occasionally this season.

Carlos Corberan has had Clarke to choose from most of the season, and that proves that he has not done anywhere near enough to impress Marcelo Bielsa in the first team.
