Leicester City are set to decide on the future of defender Mitch Clark, amidst interest from Blackpool, as per a recent report by Leicestershire Live.
The 22-year-old has been training with the Seasiders and is said to have greatly impressed Blackpool boss Neil Critchley.
However it is as yet unclear as to whether the versatile defender is looking for a loan or permanent move to Bloomfield Road at present.
A decision is set to be made between the two clubs before Blackpool’s next friendly tomorrow, with talks said to be ongoing between both parties.
Clark originally joined the Foxes back in 2019 from Aston Villa and has since taken in two loan spells with Port Vale.
Quiz: What was the score the last time Blackpool played at each of these 24 stadiums?
The Wales youth international has just one year remaining on his contract at the King Power Stadium and could well depart for a fee this summer if Blackpool decide to make their move for his services.
I think Clark would be a great addition for Blackpool as he can play in various positions across the back four, which is something that always proves to be useful over the course of a long season.
He seemingly doesn’t feature in Leicester’s plans and I believe that a permanent or loan deal could quite easily be negotiated for the 22-year-old.
The defender is now at an age where he needs to be playing regular football and quite frankly he simply won’t get the minutes he wants if he stays put in the Midlands.
Blackpool are playing a progressive and exciting brand of football under Critchley and a move to Bloomfield Road would arguably be the best logical step for him to progress his career.
It will be interesting to see how he fairs in the Sky Bet Championship if this deal does get done between the two clubs.
