Max Clark is set to leave Hull City and join a team abroad, according to a reliable football journalist on Twitter.
Alan Nixon is reporting that Clark’s move to a foreign team will be announced shortly.
This overseas club is widely thought to be Vitesse Arnhem, where he would reunite with former Hull manager Leonid Slutsky.
Vitesse have been strongly linked with Clark and Slutsky was the boss who gave the young left-back his first-team breakthrough.
The Tigers tabled a contract extension for the former Cambridge United loanee but refused to budge on their initial terms, meaning he will leave at the end of the month once his contract expires.
The 22-year-old played 30 games for Hull last season and was also a target for Nottingham Forest, Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday.
But the Championship trio look set to miss out with Clark closing in on a move to Holland.
Vitesse play in the Eredivisie – the top division of Dutch football – and he looks set to continue his footballing education in the Netherlands with a compensation fee heading to Hull.
Hull should have offered Clark improved offers once interest started flooding in from other teams.
He is an academy product and was showing signs that he can get even better with more playing time.
This is an interesting career move for the youngster, who is taking an unorthodox career path with a move to Holland.
