Exclusive: Tottenham invite forward to Sunday's clash, he'll meet Mourinho for talks
Leeds United loanee Jack Clarke is heading to Tottenham to meet Jose Mourinho for the first time this weekend, Football Insider can reveal.
The winger, 19, is set to travel to London with the Leeds side that face Fulham in Saturday afternoon’s Championship clash at Craven Cottage.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that their summer signing has been invited to the club’s new stadium to watched Sunday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea 24 hours later.
He will hold talks with Mourinho, who has yet to meet Clarke since being appointed the new manager last month.
The meeting should go some way to deciding where the teenager will play his football in the second half of the season.
Football Insider revealed last Saturday that Tottenham are set to exercise the mid-season recall clause in Clarke’s loan deal as soon as the January window opens for business.

He has made just one league appearance and been a virtual permanent fixture on the substitute’s bench, as was the case once again in the 3-3 draw against Cardiff City at Elland Road.
Clarke, who signed for Spurs for an initial £9.5million in the summer, has been reduced to just three Leeds appearances this season, two of which have come in the League Cup.
As revealed by Football Insider, he has been targeted for a January loan by Championship big guns Fulham, Middlesbrough and Derby County, while Nottingham Forest have also been credited with an interest.
In other Leeds United news, it has been claimed by insider that “Jurgen Klopp is keen for Rhian Brewster to move to Elland Road’.
