Sunderland want to sign Jack Clarke on a permanent deal from Tottenham Hotspur

Sunderland want to sign Jack Clarke on a permanent deal from Tottenham Hotspur, according to Craig Hope (h/t football.london). The Balck Cats initially had the winger on loan from Spurs last season.

After an impressive six months at the Stadium of Light, the side from Tyne and Wear wants to bring the player back, but this time on a long-term deal. Sunderland finished their season on a high as they secured promotion to the Championship after winning the League One playoff finals against Wycombe Wanderers.

Clarke played a key role on Alex Neil’s side. The 21-year-old played 20 times for the Black Cats, scoring one goal and assisting four. The winger played 90 minutes in both legs of the semi-finals of the playoffs against Sheffield Wednesday, providing an assist.

Time to say goodbye?

Clarke initially signed for Tottenham in 2019 but was loaned back to Leeds for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. The 21-year-old has mostly played for the U23 side but has made four appearances for the first team.

Spurs are now building a squad under Antonio Conte with the ambition of challenging for titles. The North London side have made some exciting recruitments under the Italian, especially in the attack.

Richarlison recently signed for the club while Dejan Kulusevski has enjoyed a good run in the team since arriving in January. Another experienced forward has been signed in Ivan Perisic.

The mainstays in the team are Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Other options are also available, but there is speculation about their future. Thus, the Italian manager has many forward options to choose from.

Clarke is still young and needs a bit more quality and experience. Game time is essential for a player to improve their ability over time. A move away wouldn’t be the worst idea at this point.

The 21-year-old is wanted by Sunderland and the Championship is a good league for a player to learn their trade. Fans will want to see Clarke be successful, but getting into a side with world-beaters is difficult.
