Tottenham youngster Jack Clarke is set to spend the second half of the season on loan at Sunderland, according to Football.London.
The 21-year-old has been loaned out to Leeds, QPR and Stoke following his £11m switch from Leeds in 2019, but he stayed at Tottenham this summer, playing with the Under-23s.
Clarke’s only senior outing for Spurs this season came as a second-half substitute against Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League when Nuno Espirito Santo was manager, but the attacker has only been on the bench for the first-team just once since.
He has scored three goals and laid on four assists in Premier League 2, but Clarke needs to be playing senior football on a regular basis.
Therefore, Alasdair Gold believes that he’s on the verge of making the loan move to the Stadium of Light, with his medical expected to take place tomorrow before a deal will be finalised. He’ll link up with former Tottenham youngsters Dennis Cirkin and Alex Pritchard.
