According to HITC, Tottenham Hotspur may receive financial support because of a sell-on clause they hold for Jack Clarke, since Burnley and Sheffield United are now showing interest in the winger.
After joining Spurs for £10 million in 2019, Clarke struggled to establish himself at the club after joining from Elland Road. The winger only made four senior games for the Lilywhites before leaving for Sunderland.
Since moving to the Stadium of Light, the winger has flourished. He was a major factor in the Black Cats’ promotion the previous season and has shown himself to be among the Championship’s top attackers thus far this year.
In his 26 league outings in the English second-tier (Transfermarkt), the 26-year-old has contributed two assists and 12 goals. It is currently believed that Premier League clubs are interested in signing him.
Clarke might be headed back to the top level.
According to HITC, Burnley and Sheffield United are preparing bids for the former Tottenham player in the current transfer window.
According to the publications, the Clarets and the Blades feel that an offer of about £15 million would be sufficient to seal the transfer, even though Sunderland values Clarke at £20 million.
Spurs would be owed £4.5 million if the winger were to sign a contract for £15 million this month since the North London team has a 30% sell-on clause on the player.
Given that the Lilywhites need reinforcements wide and can buy Clarke for 30% less than other teams, some Spurs supporters may question whether Tottenham should enter the race for the player.
Nevertheless, given that he barely saw any playing time during his stint with the team, it seems unlikely that the 23-year-old would be overly excited about a move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
