Cardiff? Swansea City? The potential paths for Peterborough striker Jonson Clarke-Harris



Peterborough United striker, Jonson Clarke-Harris, struck his 29th goal of the season on Saturday as Posh cruised to a 3-0 win over Swindon Town. 

In wake of that game, Clarke-Harris took to Twitter to underline that whilst he was delighted with the win, he was disappointed with his own efforts.

Those are the high standards that have been set by the 26-year-old this season in League One.

He is the division’s leading goalscorer and, as the summer looms, is finding himself branded hot property ahead of the transfer window.

So, what does the future hold for Clarke-Harris? We look at the paths he could take:

Swansea City 

Football League World understand that Swansea are keeping tabs on Clarke-Harris and are prepared to battle for the service of the striker in the summer transfer window.

Steve Cooper’s side currently sit fourth in the Championship table and could be in contention for promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

However, they are looking for a striker in the summer and could test the waters with regard to Clarke-Harris.

Cardiff City 

It’s also been confirmed to Football League World that Cardiff like Clarke-Harris.

If a transfer battle materialises over the course of the summer transfer window, it’s expected to be Swansea and Cardiff locking horns to try and lure the prolific Peterborough striker to South Wales.

Stay with Posh 

Clarke-Harris’ form has catapulted Peterborough into second in the League One table and they are in a three-horse race for the top-two with Hull City and Sunderland.

There is every chance that Clarke-Harris will get his chance in the Championship without having to make a move this summer, which might tempt him to stay at London Road.

More lucrative offers might be on the table, but the striker is thriving under Darren Ferguson and Posh has proved to be the stepping stone for him to elevate his game.

What’s clear right now, though, is that the form Clarke-Harris has shown and the demands the striker has of himself will lead him to the Championship one way or another.
