Clarke is the first signing in 18 months for the Champions League runners-up since Lucas Moura joined them in January last year.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed but British media reported Spurs paid an initial £10 million for Clarke, who signed a contract until 2023.
“I’m delighted to join Tottenham and in the short term I’ll be giving my all to hopefully help Leeds win promotion,” Clarke said in a statement on Spurs’ website.
