Stoke City have continued their January spree with the signing of youngster Jack Clarke from Tottenham.
Clarke becomes the Potters’ fourth addition this month, and will spend the remainder of the season on loan at the Bet365 Stadium following his temporary switch from Jose Mourinho’s side.
Having made the big money move from Leeds United in the summer of 2019, the attacker has been restricted to just three first-team appearances at Spurs – with the most recent of those coming in Sunday’s FA Cup win at Marine, whilst the other two both came in the Europa League.
Did Stoke City sign each of these 14 players for more or less than £1 million?
Clarke spent time on loan at both Leeds and then QPR last season, but found opportunities hard to come by, and hasn’t started a league match since April 2019.
However, the on-loan Tottenham man will be looking for a fresh start with the Potters as he looks to resurrect his career following a frustrating 18 month period since leaving Elland Road.
Clarke’s arrival continues Stoke’s productive January window, and the Bet365 faithful would appear happy with the Michael O’Neill’s has managed to get over the line.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter to Clarke’s signing:
