Transfer News: Jack Clarke wants to remain at Tottenham
According to transfer news from Football.london, Tottenham starlet Jack Clarke wants to stay back at the club. He does not want to head out on loan and instead wants to fight for a place under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo. Interest has been there from the Championship and Scottish sides as well.
A youth product of Leeds United, Clarke spent his developmental years at the club before Spurs signed him in 2019. However, he would return to his boyhood club for the first half of that season before going on another loan spell to QPR for the rest of the campaign. On his return, he was allowed to stay with the first team.
However, with just three senior outings under his belt, he was allowed to leave for Stoke City on loan for the latter half of last season. The move worked wonders but an injury ended his stay prematurely and he had to return to the club. Clarke has been a part of the preseason and even got the nod in the game against Pacos de Ferreira.
Despite playing mostly for the U-23’s, Clarke has taken the decision to not go out on loan again. He wants to stay back and fight for his place in the side under Nuno. The decision could be reconsidered in January next year much like last season. Regardless, there has been interest from the Championship and Scottish clubs for the winger.

While it’s definitely commendable that the 20-year-old wants to stay and fight for a spot, he is unlikely to feature much. There are a lot of senior wingers in the side who are ahead of him in the pecking order. Going out on a loan might have been a smarter decision in this case at least.
