Tottenham Hotspur could be looking to offload Jack Clarke this summer

According to Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur could let go of youngster Jack Clarke this summer. It is also believed that the club could pen a short-term extension with the player in order to raise his value in the market.

The 21-year-old is out on loan at Sunderland this season. He has managed to bag one goal and two assists in 16 matches across all competitions for the Black Cats to date. The York-based player has one year left on his contract with Spurs.

The English forward arrived at the North London club nearly three years ago for a fee of £9m. Since then the youngster has struggled to establish himself in the Tottenham setup and the club may look to move him on at the end of the season.

Clarke out of Spurs?

The English youngster has previously had loan spells at QPR, Leeds United, and Stoke City. After all these stints, it seems that his time at Hotspur Way may be coming to an end. At 21, the youngster still has some of his prime years ahead of him.

Having a grave setback at such an early stage of his budding career could also hinder his progress and cause a huge blow to his morale. That being said, it seems likely that Clarke will still have some time, albeit not much to prove his worth to the club hierarchy.

We have quite a few youngsters such as Harvey White, Kion Etete as well as Troy Parrot who have popped up on the radar of QPR. All the rumours regarding the future of these youngsters could be a worrying update for our fans across the globe.

That being said, the club has to make certain harsh decisions and at times letting go of a youngster like Jack Clarke can seem like one of them. In a report by Daily Mail in February this year, we see that 97 percent of academy players from a pool of 4,109 former elite academy players now aged between 21 and 26, failed to make a first-team appearance with 70 percent of them never being handed professional contracts.

Taking such a big rejection at this age isn’t an easy task for any footballer, especially one who has dreamt of representing a top club on the big stage. Such youngsters have even slipped into depression with some unfortunate incidents taking place as a result of this in the past.

These numbers seem scary but hint toward an alarming reality of the beautiful game. We hope that Jack Clarke doesn’t become another part of this statistic and should he depart Spurs make a name for himself elsewhere, living a life of pride and dignity.
