Some Stoke City fans on social media have said that Jack Clarke showed some promising signs on his debut for the club against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Tottenham decided against loaning Clarke out in the summer after his disappointing spells at Leeds United and QPR last season.

The winger got the opportunity to train with the first-team stars at Tottenham and also made three senior appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side.

However, the club eventually gave the green light for the 20-year-old to join Stoke until the end of the season in order to get some game time under his belt.

The winger started on the bench and came on just after the hour mark for Michael O’Neill’s side in their clash at Ewood Park on Saturday.

The Potters took the lead in the first half but had to settle for a point after conceding a late equaliser.

Despite some Stoke fans admitting that Clarke did not get too many opportunities to run at the Blackburn defence, they felt that the youngster showed glimpses of quality after coming on.

This loan spell at Stoke really is make-or-break for Clarke as he fails to have much of an impact at the Bet365 stadium, his confidence will take a huge blow. Although he is still very young, it will be hard to see a way back for him if his third loan spell also turns out unsuccessful.
