Sunderland are said to have made a transfer approach for Tottenham Hotspur’s Jack Clarke, as per a recent report by Football Insider.

The 21-year-old winger has struggled for game time with the North London side ever since making the move to the capital from his boyhood side Leeds United back in 2019 for a fee of £13 million.

Since then Clarke has spent time on loan with both Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City and it now appears that he could be set to be allowed to leave the club on a temporary basis once again.

The Black Cats are said to be one of several sides that are interested in loaning the youngster and it appears that they have already made an enquiry about the deal.

Clarke could have moved on loan back in August but decided to stay put with Spurs and has since mainly featured for the club’s under-23 side this season.

Yes No

However it now seems that a move could be in the offing for the forward as he looks to get regualr game time away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Verdict

This would be yet another eye catching move for Sunderland in January as they continue to further strengthen their attacking options since the turn of the new year.

Clarke is a player who needs regualr minutes and it is clear that he would be afforded them if he moved to the Stadium of Light.

He has the quality to play a lot higher up than League One and would no doubt thrive if he made the move to the third tier before the month is out.

It would be a major coup for the Black Cats as they look to follow up on the recent signing of Patrick Roberts from Manchester City with the addition of Clarke.
