He has not made an Arsenal first-team appearance but has played in the EFL Trophy for the club’s Under-21s.
Clarke is primarily a centre-back but can also operate on the right-hand side of defence and in a defensive midfield role.
Capped by England at Under-17s level, he has made 20 appearances for Arsenal Under-23s as well as 32 games for their Under-18s.
Ross County manager Malky has already used his contacts from south of the border to strengthen his squad with players from the Premier League.
He has brought in Jake Volkins from Southampton on loan and Alex Robertson has also come in from Manchester City.
