Harte responded to a tweet about Clarke being at the club for the promotion chasers top of the table clash with Norwich City, early next month.

The full exchange of tweets…
It’s obvious Harte has Leeds running through his veins. It’s highly unlikely he would help a young footballer with a bright future make a rash decision.
Even though he is first and foremost an agent. It must be warming for Leeds fans to know he is in good hands.
The speculation has left United fans worried, but Harte looks to have nipped the rumours in bud for now.
Clarke will be hoping to play a huge part during the rest of the season as Leeds look to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.
