Celtic are keeping tabs on Tottenham youngster Jack Clarke this summer – after missing out on the winger during January, according to Football Insider.

Clarke, who joined Spurs from Leeds United for £9.5m last July, is yet to be given a chance by his parent-club, and was loaned back to Elland Road for the first half of this season.

But after making just three appearances for the Whites in all competitions, he was recalled by Jose Mourinho in January – with Tottenham desperate for him to be playing regular football at senior level.

After a brief return to Tottenham, the 19-year-old was then loaned out to Queens Park Rangers, but has endured more frustration at Loftus Road, featuring just five times for Mark Warburton’s men – with Clarke’s only start coming in the FA Cup third-round tie against Sheffield Wednesday.

However, the Football Insider are suggesting that Celtic have been watching Clarke closely, and would be keen on bringing him to Celtic Park on a season-long loan deal this summer.

It hasn’t worked out for Clarke since joining Spurs – with the youngster still waiting for his first taste of senior action in north London, but with Celtic almost certain to be playing in the Champions League next season, a move to the Scottish champions looks an exciting opportunity for the teenager.
