It’s been reported this week that Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has turned his attentions to Leeds United starlet Jack Clarke as a potential target for the January transfer window.

The original report comes from Italian based outlet Calciomercato and it’s barely even a paragraph of information, so I don’t believe this one is reliable at all.

It simply ticks the boxes that suggest Southampton under Hasenhuttl will have a far more prominent youthful feel once again with a real pathway through for youngsters once more at the club.

Clarke certainly ticks that box with his growing development in the campaign of 2018/19 as he features pretty regularly for manager Marcelo Bielsa now, although mostly as a substitute as they continue working on his game.

He’s already been heavily linked with Manchester City as well with it said that Pep Guardiola is a fan of the winger. As said, I don’t see this one coming off but it is the right sort of player we should be linked with given how successful we have been previously in developing young talent.

  • WHY would Clarke would choose to go to Southampton?

    Leeds WILL be in the Premiership next season, the jury is out as to whether Southampton will be…

    Exciting times ahead for LUFC, can the the same be said for the Saints?

    Sorry, this is pure drivel journalism!
