QPR have recently confirmed that they have completed the signing of Jack Clarke on loan until the end of the season from Tottenham Hotspur.
The winger arrives at Loftus Road after being recalled from his loan spell with Leeds United, where he failed to make a notable impact after being considerably far down the pecking order in Marcelo Bielsa’s plans.
Clarke rejoined Leeds on a season-long loan deal during the summer of 2019, which came after he signed for Spurs after impressing during the 2018/19 campaign.
The youngster only made three appearances for the Leeds first team this season though, and was largely used for the Under 23’s side this term, which will have been frustrating for Clarke.
Clarke took to Instagram following his arrival a QPR, and expressed his eagerness to get started with the Hoops.
A number of the Leeds United squad were quick to respond to Clarke’s social media message, and wished him well in the move to Loftus Road.
Eddie Nketiah was also recalled from his loan spell with the Whites earlier this season, but the Arsenal forward was clearly pleased to see Clarke earn another loan move to a new club in the Championship for the remainder of this year’s campaign.
Clarke could be in line to make his QPR debut this weekend when they take on his former club Leeds United at Loftus Road, in what could prove to be a tricky game for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

He’ll be keen to get one over his former club this weekend.
I think Clarke was harshly treated by Leeds, and it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him thrive with Mark Warburton’s QPR side this season.
He’s a player with a bright future ahead of him if previous performances are anything to go by, and I think Leeds will regret not playing him on a more regular basis.
