Huddersfield have offered highly-rated goalkeeper Alex Smithies a new contract with the club.
The 18-year-old has caught the eye with a number of mature performances this season and the Terriers are understandably keen to keep him at the Galpharm Stadium.
Lee Clark believes the terms on the table should be more than adequate for a young man still learning his trade, but accepts that the England U19 international may wish to try his luck elsewhere.
"Alex has our contract offer now and he will have seen it with his family and his agent," Clark told the club's official website.
"We are waiting for a response back now, but I will say is that with the backing of the chairman-elect Dean Hoyle and chief executive Nigel Clibbens we have made what I consider to be a Premiership contract offer to an 18-year-old goalkeeper.
"We are trying everything that we possibly can to persuade Alex Smithies to stay at Huddersfield Town Football Club but as I have said before he will eventually end up at the highest level and we know the lad will have ambition to play at the top of the game.
"I believe he can get there with Huddersfield, but it is his decision.
"He is a great lad with a fantastic future ahead of him and he works to his maximum with our goalkeeping coach John Vaughan every day in training.
"If he decides to go, there will be no fall-out between me and him as it will be a professional decision but we are trying our very best to keep him at this football club for the next two, three or four years."
