Tottenham Hotspur winger Jack Clarke attracts interest from Championship teams
According to TEAMtalk (h/t DerbyshireLive), Tottenham Hotspur winger Jack Clarke has attracted interest from multiple Championship clubs on loan. He has been largely out of favour at his current club following his move from Leeds United in 2019.
The 20-year-old was bought from Leeds for £10 million and was loaned back to Marcelo Bielsa’s side. However, following the transfer, he has had a downward trajectory, and his performances have since waned.
Loan deals to Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City followed, but the winger has not stamped his authority at either of those clubs. He had a good string of games at Stoke but, an injury put an end to his momentum prematurely.
Derby County, Barnsley, Luton Town and Millwall are all said to be the interested Championship clubs. There does not appear to be any interest in a permanent deal but the loan switch could act as an audition of sorts.
Without a drastic change in his current situation, it seems that the Englishman could be going out on loan yet again to ply his trade. Antonio Conte’s side will be hoping that he will be able to recapture the early magic that he showed at Elland Road.
Having made just four appearances since his move from Bielsa’s side in 2019, it looks more and more likely that the winger will need to act fast to resurrect his career. There is no better time than the upcoming January transfer window to achieve that.

Tottenham would be hopeful of recouping the money that they paid for him through these loan deals. However, the significant sum that they paid will only be covered if Clarke rediscovers his footing. Time will tell what lies in store with him at Spurs.
