Jack Clarke joins Stoke City on loan from Tottenham Hotspur
The 20-year-old joined Tottenham in July 2019 from Leeds United. He was loaned back to Elland Road for the season as a part of his new contract.
But he did not feature regularly in Marcelo Bielsa’s side, which prompted Spurs to call him back in January 2020. Later in the same month, he was loaned out to Queens Park Rangers.
That did not work out well too and Spurs opted to keep him for the upcoming season when he returned from QPR. Clarke went on to make his senior debut for the club this season.
He was brought on for the last four minutes against LASK in the UEFA Europa League group stage. Spurs won that game 3-0, and Clarke featured again in the same competition on matchday 4.
This time, he got over 20 minutes as he played on the flank in a 4-0 win against Ludogorets. His most recent appearance came against Marine on 10th January. (h/t transfermarkt)
A good move for the youngster
He played 25 minutes in a 5-0 rout of the Merseyside minnows in the FA Cup. And now, he has a new adventure on his hands at Championship side Stoke City.
Stoke are 8th in the EFL Championship, just 2 points away from the play-off spot. This seems like a good move for the winger, especially if he can become a starter there.
Getting regular minutes at this age can prove to be important for a young player. And Spurs are in no urgent need of backup on the wings.

Clarke would hope that this move helps him showcase his ability and improve his game before he returns to Enfield in the summer.
