Stoke City, Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry City are in the hunt to sign Jack Clarke on loan from Tottenham.
The Championship trio have been put on red alert after the club made the winger available for loan.
A recruitment source told Football Insider Spurs expect Clarke to once again drop down a division after spells at Leeds United and QPR last season.
This site revealed last week the north London giants are willing to allow the 20-year-old leave on loan next month.
Spurs blocked a temporary exit for the York-born ace in the summer window as they wanted him to continue his development at the club.
There were also worries about how much playing time he would get on loan after his difficult spells with Leeds and QPR last season.
Clarke made just one appearance for Leeds in the first half of the season before playing six times for QPR after making the switch across London in January.
The season before, he had emerged as a key player for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds side where his fine form earned him a £10million move to Spurs.
After the club made the decision to keep hold of him for the first half of this season, Clarke has made two appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side in the Europa League.
He has also netted twice and provided one assist in eight games for Tottenham Under-23s in Premier League 2.
With Mourinho boasting a plethora of attacking talent, Clarke has not made a Premier League matchday squad.
The likes of Heung-Min Son, Steven Bergwijn, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura are all ahead of him in the pecking order.
