“Not seen anything”: Manager of EFL club rules out January move for Tottenham ace

Sunderland want to sign Jack Clarke on a permanent deal from Tottenham Hotspur.

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock rules out move for Jack Clarke

According to Wales Online, Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock has ruled out a January loan move for Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jack Clarke.

The 20-year-old joined Tottenham from Leeds United in July 2019 for a fee in the region of £10m plus add-ons. He joined after enjoying a breakthrough season in 2018/19 at Elland Road and was immediately loaned back to the club. However, a lack of game time under Marcelo Bielsa saw Tottenham recall him from Leeds and loan him out to QPR.

The Englishman didn’t play much for the R’s either, taking the field on just seven occasions before the 2019/20 season ended. Back at Tottenham, Clarke has featured just three times across all competitions for the first-team this season.  (h/t Transfermarkt)

Clarke is said to have impressed Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff this term. But, given his lack of playing minutes, the club would be open to letting him leave on loan for the rest of the season. Middlesbrough, Stoke City and Swansea were all reported to be keen on signing him up. (h/t Sky Sports)

However, now Middlesbrough manager has denied such speculations, insisting that the Tottenham youngster is not on the club’s radar. (h/t Wales Online)

“I don’t want to be disrespectful to Jack, and I’m sure he’s a very good player, but I’ve not seen anything of him. The type I’m looking at are players who are probably going to come straight into the team and make a difference.”

Considering his situation, it is important that Clarke spend the second half of the season away on loan and get a taste of senior football. With Middlesbrough dropping out of the race, it remains to be seen where the youngster moves.
