Tottenham Hotspur winger Jack Clarke is attracting interest from three clubs ahead of the new season, according to Football.London.

Clarke joined Tottenham for a fee in the region of £10million and subsequently loaned him back to the Elland Road outfit for the duration of the 2020/21 campaign (Telegraph).

The return to his former side proved to be an ill-fated decision after he played just 19 minutes of Championship football at Marcelo Bielsa’s side before his loan spell was cancelled by Spurs in the January (The Sun) and was once again sent out on loan to QPR where failed to become a first-team regular (transfermarkt).

Last season was a marked improvement, with the 20-year-old enjoying a productive spell at the Stoke City, having made 14 appearances and providing two assists before his stint was cut short after sustaining ankle ligament damage and was ruled out of action for the remainder of the season.

The report claims that Clarke’s future at Spurs will be decided in the coming weeks, where Nuno Espirito Santo will cast his eye over the winger during the club’s upcoming pre-season friendly fixtures and weigh up whether he remains at the club or heads off for more first-team experience.

Two of the clubs which are said to be keen on taking the ex-Leeds man on loan are in the Championship, while there is also interest from a Belgian side.

Another season of regular first-team football would benefit Clarke more than bit-part appearances in the Europa Conference League and the domestic cup competitions.   Clarke has had a tough couple of years since Leeds, the upcoming campaign is huge for him to prove that he can cut it as a Championship regular at the very least.
