Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to call for Jack Clarke to be promoted from the Under-23s into the first team squad following his latest masterclass.

United’s development side continued their impressive run with a convincing 4-0 win against Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Monday night.

A Sam Dalby goal, a Tyler Denton strike and an own goal ensured Carlos Corberan’s side ended their Professional Development League campaign in style.

Clarke, who signed a professional contract with Leeds on his 17th birthday last November, has tormented defenders at age-group level in recent months.
