Nottingham Forest are keen to take Tottenham youngster Jack Clarke on loan this summer, according to The Athletic.

Clarke, 20-years-old, could be loaned out by Spurs to get more experience under his belt.

Tottenham signed the winger from Leeds in 2019 for a fee of £10 million. However, Clarke is yet to make a Premier League appearance for Spurs – only featuring three times overall in the Europa League and FA Cup.  

He went on loan to Queens Park Rangers in the 2019/2020 season and then followed that up by going on loan to Stoke City in 2020/2021.

The winger rose through the ranks at Leeds United and got his breakthrough in the 2018/19 Championship season under Marcelo Bielsa, featuring 25 times in all competitions and scoring two goals to help the Whites reach the Championship play-offs.

The teenager was also named the Leeds United Young Player of the Year for his performances.

SpursWeb Opinion 

Clarke is desperate for a breakthrough season. His two loans to Championship clubs – QPR and Stoke – have been underwhelming.

He needs a good season for his development and it could well be at the City Ground under Chris Hughton.

The winger, no doubt, has talent – it’s just a case of getting consistent minutes and a template to show it off.
