Newcastle United: Magpies gifted Bobby Clark transfer boost

Newcastle United: Magpies gifted Bobby Clark transfer boost - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United have been gifted a transfer boost as Tottenham Hotspur have rejected the chance to sign wonderkid Bobby Clark.

The Lowdown: Clark has been in-demand

Clark, who is the son of former St. James’ Park star Lee Clark, who made more than 150 senior appearances in the North East, has been in-demand from a number of clubs.

Should Newcastle keep Clark?





Back in November 2019, theĀ Daily Mail reported that Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Spurs were interested in signing the then 14-year-old talent, who is now 16 years of age.

The Latest: Tottenham reject Clark chance

Football Insider had reported a few days ago that Spurs had been offered the chance to sign Clark, but now, according to the same outlet, the North London club have since rejected the opportunity.

Can you get 100% on the Newcastle 2020/21 quiz... Who scored the Magpies' first goal of the season?

Academy coach Paul Bracewell has advised the Lilywhites not to make a move for him, having watched the Englishman in recent weeks, a Spurs source has allegedly told FI.

The Verdict: Newcastle transfer boost

Even though he is just 16 years of age, it looks as if Clark could grow up to be a star in the beautiful game.

He became the youngest-ever player to represent the Tyneside club at under-18 level at the tender age of just 14 years and 206 days, and has also represented England at under-16 level.

Thus, it may be too early to let a player with such promise go, especially to a rival in the Premier League, and instead let him develop further.

As he gets older he can only get better, meaning that if the Magpies were ever looking to sell him in the future, his value will increase up to a point and therefore they could demand a substantial fee later on.

Of course, there is also the dream scenario he becomes a fixture in the first team for the long haul, something the Toon Army would surely adore.
