Leeds United’s Jack Clarke has been the subject of plenty of speculation over the past month or so.
The teenager has emerged as one of the brightest prospects in the game and has seen his profile increase significantly over the last season.
With his contract set to expire in the summer, there was always going to be significant talk about Clarke’s future, however, the player’s agent appears to have put all rumours to bed.
Ian Harte, who was also a fan favourite with those at Elland Road during his playing days, represents the winger as one of his clients and took to Twitter to provide an update.

Responding to a Tweet from a Tottenham Hotspur fan account, he said: “Jack will be staying at Leeds and wants to get the club back to where it belongs!!!”
Marcelo Bielsa has turned to the 18-year-old on a number of occasions throughout the campaign and the player has become a key member of his side as the club look to win promotion to the Premier League.
Harte’s comments will come as hugely positive news for Leeds and Bielsa as they look to continue their efforts to win promotion to the Premier League.
There is no doubt that Clarke has been vitally important for the club this season with his performances and will play a key role in the second half of the campaign.
However, with his contract up in the summer, there will still be some concern that the 18-year-old could depart and Leeds will be hoping they can get him to commit his future to the club with a new deal.
