Noel Whelan has suggested to Football Insider that Jack Clarke will leave Leeds United and go back to his parent club Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

Clarke, who can operate as a winger or as a forward, joined Premier League club Tottenham from Championship outfit Leeds in the summer transfer window.

The 18-year-old was loaned back to the Whites for the 2019-20 season in the hope that he progresses and develops at Elland Road.

However, the winger has failed to make a single appearance in the Championship for Marcelo Bielsa’s side so far this season and has not been in matchday squads on occasions.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the youngster made four starts and 20 substitute appearances in the league for Leeds, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

Former Leeds striker Whelan, who now works as a pundit for BBC Radio Leeds, believes that Clarke will go back to his parent club Spurs in the middle of the season.

Whelan told Football Insider: “It’s inevitable Jack will go back to Tottenham, and probably on loan to another club. He wants to be playing regularly, and I’m sure that’s what Tottenham want as well.”
