QPR’s new loan signing Jack Clarke has stated that Mark Warburton played a big part in bringing him to the club.
The player is registered to Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and had spent the first-half of the season on loan at former club Leeds United.
The Whites didn’t utilise Clarke in a manner that Tottenham were happy with and he has now moved to QPR who are sat in mid-table.
His first game for the R’s will come against his former side Leeds United which is sure to add some spice to the occasion this weekend.
Clarke has expressed that he spoke to Warburton a few times and insisted that he was one of the main factors in bringing himself to the club.
Speaking to QPR’s official website, Clarke said: “I spoke to Mark a fair few times.
“He was one of the main factors in me coming here – in terms of how he wants to play football and how he sees me fitting in.”

Warburton has a successful record of developing younger players, and has taken a number of different youngsters from Tottenham in the past. It makes sense that Spurs allowed Clarke to go to QPR and hopefully they’ll value him more than Leeds did this season.
The R’s still have an opportunity for their season to be a good one as they sit in mid-table. A good run and they could be in competition for a place in the play-off places.
Clarke will hope to get a lot of game time throughout these next few months, and he’ll have lots of the ball in what is a very attacking QPR side that likes to play on the front foot in their fixtures.
