Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly happy with Jack Clarke, even though the Tottenham loanee is yet to feature in the Championship this season.

Spurs bought the winger from Leeds during the summer though allowed him to return to Elland Road on loan.

The 18-year-old has been left on the bench though every time he has been included in the Whites’ squad this campaign.

He has featured twice in the EFL Cup but, despite his lack of game-time, Bielsa is reportedly happy with Clarke.

Football Insider claim that the manager has held private one-on-one talks with Clarke and urged the player to keep his performance levels high in training.

It’s reported that Bielsa did not question the winger’s attitude and told him his chance will come.

But Bielsa may want to give Clarke a chance if he doesn’t want to lose the Tottenham ace, according to Noel Whelan.

Whelan said: “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.

“From what I’ve heard about Bielsa, he will be in talks with Pochettino regularly about Clarke.

“Bielsa will be telling him what’s going on in training, Clarke’s attitude, performance and effort, and why he isn’t in the side.

“They know each other well and Pochettino will be getting the full picture of what’s going on. Tottenham sent him back to Leeds because they trust Bielsa’s ability to develop young players.

“Jack Clarke is now third or fourth in the pecking order for the right wing role behind the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Helder Costa.

“Is Jack going to get in ahead of those two? No, he’s not. He’s going to have to bide his time and win the manager over in training.”
