Jack Clarke Close to Sealing Move to Stoke City
Several Championship Sides Interested
Several Championship clubs are believed to be eager to take the youngster on loan, but it looks like it could be Stoke who is winning the race to bring him to the Championship.
Talks are reportedly ongoing, with a deal close. However, no official confirmation on the move has been reached as of yet.
Clarke has yet to feature for Spurs in the Premier League this season and could do with some regular first-team action again.
Loan Spells With Leeds and Queens Park Rangers
He’s previously had loan spells at Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers, so he already has plenty of Championship experience under his belt. In fact, he started his career with Leeds, featuring 22 times before making a switch to Tottenham.
The Premier League side clearly saw something in him to bring him to the top-flight, but he has since had more spells out on loan rather than featuring for Spurs.
After heading back to Leeds on loan, his last loan spell was with QPR, where he featured six times.
Stoke Want Jack Clarke to be third Loan Signing
Now, though, it looks like he could be set for a return to the second tier with Stoke City, who are keen to sign the 20-year-old.
Stoke have already been quick to try and improve their squad this month by bringing in two players on loan in Rabbi Matondo and Rhys Norrington-Davies.
Clarke could be the third player to join the club this transfer window on a short-term basis, in a bid to give the player some much needed and more regular first-team action.
Clarke, who plays as a winger, has a total of four goal contributions in his Championship career so far – and that’s considering the fact he’s only actually ever started a total of four Championship games, playing most of them from off the substitutes bench.
