Insider: Tottenham could sell Clarke at '75% loss' in January after Hotspur Way latest
Tottenham could sell £13million capture Jack Clarke for as little as £2m in January after failing to make the grade at the club.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Clarke, 20, joined Tottenham from Leeds United for £13m in July 2019.
However, during his time at the club, he has only amassed 95 minutes of first-team minutes across four outings.
Wenham claims Spurs will look to offload the youngster in January and insists the club will listen to permanent offers.
“Clarke was signed after impressing at Leeds in mainly sub appearances,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“It just hasn’t happened for him yet at Tottenham. He went back on loan to Leeds straight away.
“Leeds then spent that money on Helder Costa who only came in on loan initially.
“Due to EFL rules over loan players, that meant Clarke very often wasn’t getting in the squad.
“He was also loaned to QPR and he barely got a look in.
“Most damning for me, as someone who watches our Under-23s side regularly, is he isn’t performing to the same level as someone like Dilan Markanday.
“Quite rightly he isn’t getting opportunities. We have spent a lot of money on a young player that hasn’t worked out.
“I think Tottenham will look to loan him out in January but I also think they will accept a permanent move.
“The fee will probably be in the region of £2million which is a 75% loss on what we paid for him.
“But he doesn’t deserve to go for any more than that, the performances haven’t been there.”
