Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold has revealed Tottenham will initially receive a low fee from Sunderland for Jack Clarke with future add-ons potentially taking the deal to as high as around £10 million. 

Football Insider recently claimed the Black Cats have reached an agreement to sign the 21-year-old winger with medical thought to already be underway. 

Although the report did not mention how much Spurs would be receiving for Clarke, Gold has since stated potential bonuses could move the deal to around the £10m mark after a small initial fee. 

With Clarke set to depart Spurs having made just three appearances (Transfermarkt), it represents a solid piece of transfer business for the club, who parted ways with around £10m themselves for his transfer from Leeds in 2019 (BBC Sport). 

Clarke’s imminent move to Sunderland comes after he spent the second half of last season on loan at the Stadium of Light where he enjoyed a strong end to his campaign. 

He teed up the winning goal in the League One play-off semi-final against Sheffield Wednesday before the club sealed promotion to the Championship in the final at Wembley.

While it is not guaranteed that Tottenham will recoup the full amount they previously paid for Clarke, it is still good to know there is a chance of doing it. 

We also don’t know how much Sunderland will pay in terms of the initial fee, nor what the terms behind the add-ons are.
