Three clubs line up January move for Tottenham outcast Jack Clarke

Young Tottenham Hotspur winger Jack Clarke is likely to leave the club on loan in January.

The 20-year-old former Leeds United flyer is set to join one of three clubs in the Championship and League One.

Birmingham City, Charlton Athletic and Sunderland all have Clarke on their radar, who has struggled for game-time since arriving in North London.

Spurs signed Clarke from Leeds for £10m in the summer of 2019 and immediately loaned him back to Elland Road, only for Marcelo Bielsa to use him sparingly in the first half of last season.

Another failed loan stint at Queens Park Rangers followed before Jose Mourinho surprisingly opted to keep Clarke at Hotspur Way prior to this season as he felt training with the first-team would be beneficial to his development.

Clarke has featured eight times for Tottenham’s Under-23s this campaign and even came off the bench for two appearances in the Europa League.

However, the club are now said to be ready to listen to loan offers for the wide man in the January transfer window, which opens on Saturday.

It’s unknown which of the interested clubs is in pole position to sign him at this stage, though the deal is expected to be until the end of the season.

Birmingham have the divisional advantage over their two competitors, however a switch to Lee Bowyer’s Charlton could be the preferred option due to it being more local.

This would allow the Spurs hierarchy to keep close tabs on Clarke’s development, as he looks to get his career back on track after bursting onto the scene two years ago.
