Football Insider have revealed that Jack Clarke’s loan spell at Stoke City is set to be cut short after the winger picked up an achilles injury.
Clarke joined Stoke in January after putting in a few promising cameos for Tottenham in the first half of the season.
In stark contrast to his disappointing stints at Leeds and QPR last campaign, the winger hit the ground running at the Bet365 stadium.
The youngster got 14 appearances under his belt in the Championship and demonstrated his ability to run at defenders and make things happen in the final third.
Some Stoke fans were left singing the 20-year-old’s praises on the back of his displays. However, Football Insider have now confirmed that Clarke has picked up an achilles injury which is expected to keep him out of action for six weeks.
The winger’s spell at Stoke is thus set to come to a premature end, with Clarke returning to Spurs for his rehabilitation.

It is a shame that Clarke’s loan spell has ended in this manner but the winger has certainly shown enough quality during his short time at Stoke for plenty of Championship clubs to be interested in signing him for next season. I would expect the 20-year-old to be loaned out again next campaign.
