Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge has claimed that Jack Clarke’s management team should be concerned about the direction the winger’s career is headed in.

Clake has struggled to make an impact since completing a £10m move to Tottenham from Leeds United in the summer of 2019.

After a couple of disappointing loan spells during the 2019/20 campaign, the 20-year-old got a few first-team appearances under his belt for Spurs under Jose Mourinho in the first half of last season. 

The winger then showed some promise during his spell at Stoke in the second half of the campaign and would have been hoping to build on that those performances this season.

However, Spurs decided not to loan out the winger during this summer’s transfer window and he has since made just one appearance for the North London club which came in their 1-0 loss to Pacos de Ferreira in the first leg of the Europa Conference League qualifier.

According to recent reports, Barnsley, Derby County, Millwall and Luton Town have expressed interest in singing Clarke in January but Bridge believes that the youngster’s entourage will be concerned about his development. 

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “If I was part of his (Clarke’s) management team, I’d be a bit concerned now.”

At just 20 years of age, Clarke still has time on his hands to develop as a player. So, we should not be writing him off completely. However, the chances of him making it at Spurs do seem quite slim. 

The North London club will be likely be hoping that he does well on loan in the second half of the season and that they could recoup some of the money they paid for the winger during the summer.
