Tottenham winger Jack Clarke joined championship club Sky Bet Stoke on loan until the end of the season.
England Clarke International Under 20 becomes the Potter’s third loan to the transfer widow after the arrival of Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo and Sheffield United defender Rhys Norrington-Davies.
The 20-year-old has made three appearances for Spurs this season, including coming off the bench in Sunday’s 5-0 FA Cup third round victory over non-league Marine.
Clarke was a £ 10million signing by Spurs from Leeds in the summer of 2019. He was immediately loaned out to Whites for the 2019 season / but he was rarely featured. After his decisive season the year before, the York-born wideman would have expected to feature prominently. Instead, his loan was cut short in January 2020 and he signed a loan for QPR.
City boss Michael O’Neill told the club’s official website: “Jack is an exciting young player who will add an extra dimension to our resources for the rest of the season.
Clarke joined Tottenham from Leeds in July 2019 and initially remained on loan at Elland Road, before spending the second half of last season at QPR.
Stoke sits eighth in the championship ahead of Saturday’s trip to Blackburn.
Mourinho points to defense
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho insists he doesn’t expect Tottenham to make any new signings during the transfer window – but has strongly suggested he is angry with his defenders for allowing Fulham an equalizer.
Tottenham took the lead in the first half thanks to the always reliable Harry Kane after a sublime serve from Sergio Reguilon.
Son Heung-min wasted an opportunity to put the game to bed by hitting the post after the break.
The near-accident turned out to be fatal when Ivan Cavaleiro nodded an equalizer a few minutes later.
After the game, Mourinho lamented his team’s inability to ‘kill the game’.
The Portuguese brand is known as a kind of “checkbook manager”. However, he’s adamant he won’t ask Daniel Levy for a dime this month.
It’s not because he doesn’t want new players; rather for his own admission that he “does not feel the right to ask for something”.
It was after the club signed seven new players over the summer in a difficult financial situation in the game.
This confirms Mourinho’s comments last week, when he said: “One thing is to analyze, which I do of course.
“It’s another thing to demand something that I never do. Another thing is to ask and I will not ask for anything. I respect the club’s effort. “
