Three suitors have emerged in the race to sign Jack Clarke on loan after Tottenham softened their stance over letting him leave, a report claims.
Clarke has been at Tottenham since 2019, but is yet to play for them in the Premier League. His only two appearances for the club have come as a substitute in the Europa League.
The winger had two loan spells away from Tottenham last season – first going back to Leeds, where he had played before joining Spurs, and then switching to QPR.
Neither spell was particularly successful. He did not start a single game in the Championship for either side in 2019-20.
Tottenham decided against loaning him out again for the new season in order to ensure he did not suffer a limited role elsewhere again. However, their position has now changed.
According to Football Insider, Spurs are now open to loaning Clarke out in January, so that his development does not stagnate further. There are three contenders for his signature.
Stoke, Coventry and Sheffield Wednesday would like to take the 20-year-old to the Championship for the second half of the season.
It seems that all three interested parties would be ready to give Clarke a signficant role as they look to improve in the New Year.
All three clubs have different ambitions for the remainder of the campaign, but see Clarke as someone who can help them achieve their respective goals.
Strike target says Spurs move not ideal
Meanwhile, one player rumoured to be someone who could join Tottenham has cast doubt on the chances of a January move.
Spurs have been linked with a Bundesliga-based striker who was a target for them in the summer and could be attracting interest from them again thanks to his goalscoring exploits.
But despite previous hints that he would be open to the move, it appears he is not thinking about a move just yet.
