Journalist urges Tottenham to ‘move on’ Jack Clarke once summer transfer window opens

Journalist Rob Guest has claimed Tottenham Hotspurs youngster Jack Clarke is due for a permanent transfer from the club this summer.

Clark joined Spurs in the summer of 2019, however, has yet to make a league appearance for the club. It is understood that a fee of around £10million has been granted for his services, with further payments expected if certain clauses are met. But currently on loan at Sunderland, Clarke has failed to make an impact with the north London club since his switch.

Now, Football.London Tottenham reporter Guest has claimed he should leave the club for good.

Clarke has made 14 appearances for Sunderland in League One this season. During this period, he scored once and assisted two more.

And although Guest admits the winger has done a good job on loan, he still believes the player should leave in the next transfer window.

He wrote: “Clarke opted to stay at the club at the start of the season and fight for his place. But he ended up playing only one Europa Conference League game. Now on loan at Sunderland, the winger performed well at the Stadium of Light and will be determined to help them progress.

“As he will enter the final year of his contract this summer, he must be transferred permanently.”

As this is his last year on the current contract, Spurs are in danger of letting Clarke leave for free the following year.

And at just 21, Spurs still have a chance of securing a return on the £10million originally paid.

Jack Clarke’s career so far

Having joined Leeds United in 2009, Clarke made his professional debut in 2018 for the same club.

In his first professional season, Clarke impressed the Leeds faithful, securing a move to the top flight.

However, since that decision, Clarke has failed to make a single Premier League appearance. His only two games for the Spurs first team came in the Europa League.

A regular in the Under-21 and Under-23 sides, Clarke then went on loan to Sunderland in January.

Now it looks increasingly likely that Clarke will be on the move again in the next transfer window.
