Announcement imminent: Man United on the brink of signing in-demand midfielder

Jack Clarke’s flame of excellence is burning so bright at Leeds United and will not douse out any sooner.

The starlet is quick at picking up tough challenges and he is definitely a nut cracker when lounging forward. Hard to stop and tough to crack, a body frame built for the rigours of the Premier League. It is why United suddenly have an interest in the player.

The 18-year-old has made two Championship starts for Leeds this campaign, but has come off the bench a couple of times to break the deadlock for his side, with a number of goals and assists nailed beside his name on the score-sheet in the Championship.

Clarke is a versatile midfielder, one caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would definitely enjoy watching.

He can be fixed anywhere in United’s front line. Clarke, for a youngster, has enough power in his legs. His pace at the club is unrivalled and he is famous for playing tricks on his opponents, especially when thrusting forward.

Whether Clarke can break into a United team that is replete with young stars whose engine room is in an excellent condition is an understatement.

Given his lightening pace and excellent skill when on the ball, and his ability to cut it from the wing makes him a perfect choice for United,who have been linked with a January move to sign the youngster, and Leeds want a reported 12 million pounds for him.
