Transfer News: Tottenham outcast Jack Clarke expected to be out on loan yet again in January
According to Football League World (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur are likely to loan out Jack Clarke yet again in the January transfer window. The winger has been largely cast aside at his current club following his move from Leeds United.
Clarke was bought from Leeds in a move that saw Tottenham shell out a fee of around £10million. The 20-year-old was instantly loaned back to the Whites following his transfer.
The forward’s progress has stalled after his stellar time at Elland Road since he was loaned again to Stoke City. An injury to his Achilles derailed his progress with the Potters as he was getting consistent game time.
This could be a chance for the youngster to go out and get some valuable experience before he can really compete for a starting position in the Lilywhites’ XI.
Multiple English Football League clubs are said to be interested in getting the signature of the player with AFC Bournemouth being one of them. The Cherries currently sits top of their league and are looking at options to bolster their squad.
The English international is currently playing with the U-23 side and was left on the bench in the loss against Vitesse in the Europa Conference League. It looks likely that his time with the club will be coming to an end unless there’s a drastic change.
