Jack Clarke comments have thrilled Leeds United supporters

Leeds United fans are, naturally, really rather proud of their infamous academy. 

Indeed, with the Whites having produced a number of top talents over the course of their illustrious history, the fact that Thorp Arch continues to churn out talents who one day make their way to the first-team is a real source of pride up in West Yorkshire, even under Marcelo Bielsa.

So, imagine the delight amongst Whites online following comments from Jack Clarke. The 17-year-old made his debut against Brentford after a number of injuries in the Leeds first-team and looks set to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Ryan Edmundson and Tom Pearce as having regular opportunities in the starting XI.

However, the talented teen isn’t getting too excited, it seems. Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, he revealed he’s prepared to bide his time as the Yorkshire giants chase a long-awaited return to the Premier League, an attitude that’s delighted fans on Twitter.

With that in mind, here’s a closer look at the reaction.
