Football Insider are claiming that Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to allow Jack Clarke to leave the club on loan for the second half of the season.
Clarke’s respective loan spells at Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers last season did not go according to plan with the winger struggling for game time at both clubs.
The 20-year-old was expected to be loaned out again in the summer but it was reported at the time that Jose Mourinho wanted him to stay as he felt training with the first-team stars at Hotspur Way would be beneficial to Clarke’s development.
The winger has featured eight times for Tottenham’s Under-23s this campaign and even came off the bench for two appearances in the Europa League.
Football Insider suggest that the North Londoners feared that Clarke might not get enough regular football had he been loaned out in the summer.
However, the club are now said to be ready to listen to loan offers for the wide man in the January transfer window.
Spurs Web Opinion
Clark’s confidence would have likely taken a massive hit due to his struggles last season. So keeping him at Spurs and helping him rebuild some of that lost confidence seems like the right call. It is now vital that we send him out on loan to a club where he is not going to be warming the bench, even if they might be playing in a league with lesser quality like League One or the Scottish Premiership.
