Leeds United goalkeeper Will Huffer took to Twitter to hail Jack Clarke after he posted his delight on Twitter at the Under-23s win against Cardiff City on Friday.
The forward, 17, tormented the visitors defence in the development side match at Thorp Arch and created both of Leeds’ first two goals in their 3-0 triumph.
Clarke subsequently took to his personal Twitter account to say it was “great” to secure the team’s fourth consecutive victory.
Great to get the win today and to carry on this unbeaten run!???? pic.twitter.com/Yxn2xYmYW2

The teenager, who signed a professional contract with Leeds on his birthday last November, provided the assists for both of Dalby and Odour’s goals as he thrived on the left side of the attack.
Clarke’s Under-23s teammate Huffer, who did not play in the match after pulling out of the England Under-19s squad last week due to injury, noted how the wide ace how made life a misery for his immediate Cardiff right-back opponent.

Many United fans are calling for Paul Heckingbottom to fast-track Clarke into the senior XI following recent promotions for fellow academy products Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Tom Pearce.
