Tottenham source drops Clarke update
The player himself also sent a message to supporters on Instagram revealing his time at the Bet365 stadium has come to an end, with Football Insider stating he is now back at Tottenham.
A Lilywhites source, speaking to the outlet, has claimed that the next step for Clarke is to meet with the medical team in the coming days and begin planning his rehabilitation.
This is to get him fit for next season as quickly as possible after the initial timeline for his recovery was set at six weeks in a ‘cruel‘ blow for the winger.
Signed by Pochettino in 2019 for a deal that could rise to £11.5 million (The Guardian), it has been a mixed first two years in north London.
Transfer Tavern take
Jose Mourinho was thought to be really impressed by Clarke in training earlier this season and even planned to have him remain at Hotspur Way and learn from the likes of Gareth Bale (Alasdair Gold).
However, in a U-turn, Clarke headed out on loan to Stoke before suffering his latest setback.
Time will tell what the future could hold for him next season, but the priority is now to get him back to full fitness.
