Newcastle great Clark rubbishes Spurs talk for son Bobby

Newcastle United legend Lee Clark has rejected claims his son Bobby was offered to Tottenham - and subsequently turned down.

Bobby Clark is a member of Newcastle's academy team.

Clark is is currently manager of Sudanese football club Al-Merrikh SC and took to social media to set the record straight.

Lee posted: "Sorry, I debated whether to post this but I felt I had to as it was talking about a 16-year-old boy here. My son.

“Whoever the football insider (in my day a source close to the individual) they have got this 100% completely wrong.

“He has not been offered to Tottenham Hotspur, so subsequently they have not turned down the chance to sign him.

“No idea where this story came from, but it is typically social media nonsense – 99.9% of stories published are not true.

“Sorry, I deal in reality, not fake news."
