Tottenham starlet Jack Clarke put pen-to-paper on a loan with QPR until the end of the season yesterday.
The teenager had returned to Spurs after a loan spell at Leeds was ended at the start of this month.
Clarke signed for Tottenham in the summer for £10 million (BBC) from the Whites and was loaned straight back to Elland Road.
The 19-year-old made just three appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s team. Due to a lack of game time, his parent club opted to arrange a new loan spell.
Clarke burst onto the scene at Leeds last season. He made 25 appearances as Leeds reached the Championship play-off places.
The player’s agent is former Leeds hero Ian Harte.
An ex-Republic of Ireland stalwart, the left-back was a mainstay in the Leeds team when David O’Leary’s team reached the semi-final of the Champions League.
Ahead of his first game for the Hoops, ironically against Leeds, Harte tweeted a message of support to his client:

Jose Mourinho will hope that Clarke can get some game time with QPR.
The youngster badly needs some football under his belt ahead of a summer link-up with Tottenham.
Clarke has four England under-20 caps and is widely regarded as a potential star of the future.
QPR are seven points off the play-offs and will need to go on a run to gatecrash the top six.
If Clarke hits the ground running, Mark Warburton might just have landed a gem of a loan signing.
