Football London’s Rob Guest has claimed Tottenham need to move Jack Clarke on permanently this summer as his contract runs out in the summer of 2023.
Clarke was signed back in 2019 under Mauricio Pochettino after breaking into the Leeds United senior set-up as a promising young winger. The North London club shelled out a pretty significant £10m for the then-teenager (Sun).
Now 21-years-old, Clarke appears to be even further away from a first-team place than when he first arrived in N17, having made just four senior appearances in three years (TransferMarkt).
Clarke reportedly chose not to go out on loan at the start of the 2021/22 season, opting instead to stay at Hotspur Way and fight for his place (Football London). However, he eventually went out on loan in January to League One Sunderland.
Rob Guest has now argued that Spurs should cash in on the youngster this summer while they can still recoup some of their money.
He said: ‘Now on loan with League One side Sunderland, the winger has done well at the Stadium of Light and will be intent on helping them to promotion come May. As he will enter the final year of his contract this summer, he needs to be moved on permanently.’
Spurs Web Opinion:
For the sake of Tottenham and Clarke, a permanent move needs to be found this summer. I wouldn’t be surprised if Spurs let him leave on a free even with a year left on his deal, to be honest. It just hasn’t worked for him in North London.
