He is set for a medical starting on Wednesday evening before completing the paperwork of the transfer.

At the Bet365 Stadium, Clarke will link up with recent Stoke arrivals Rhys Norrington-Davies, who has joined on loan from Sheffield United, as well as Rabbi Matondo from Schalke.
As revealed by Football Insider on Monday morning, Stoke have also won the race for Charlton’s Alfie Doughty although that has yet to be announced.
Tottenham are keen for Clarke to get regular senior experience after blocking a loan move for him in the summer window
The summer-of-2019 signing has made three appearances for Tottenham this season, including in last Sunday’s FA Cup win at Marine.
Clarke, who joined from boyhood club Leeds for a potential £13million if all add-ons are activated, had difficult spells on loan at Elland Road and QPR last season.
