Tottenham are one of a host of clubs reportedly tracking 14-year-old Bobby Clark - son of former Newcastle midfielder, Lee Clark - according to the Daily Mail.

They report:

Spurs have joined the race to sign Newcastle starlet Bobby Clark with the midfielder in line for his England youth debut next month.

Magpies boss Steve Bruce rates 14-year-old Clark - the son of former Newcastle midfielder Lee - as the club’s best schoolboy prospect.

He entered the club’s history books when debuting for the Under-18s aged just 14 years and 206 days this season and we can reveal that he will be involved with England Under-15s for the first time when they face Republic of Ireland and Turkey next month.

We understand that Clark would prefer him to stay with his hometown club but there has been interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Bayern Munich over the course of recent months, such is his reputation through academy football.

But it is Spurs who are now thought to have emerged as the frontrunners, should Clark and his family decide his development is best served away from Newcastle, where concerns over the infrastructure of the club’s academy remain.
