Tottenham: Alasdair Gold drops Jack Clarke transfer fee update

Tottenham: Alasdair Gold drops Jack Clarke transfer fee update -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has provided an update on Jack Clarke’s transfer fee as he closes in on a move to Sunderland.

The Lowdown: Clarke agrees Sunderland deal

Football Insider first reported on Friday that the winger had reached an agreement to put pen to paper on a permanent move to the Black Cats after hugely impressing at the Stadium of Light during his loan spell last season.

The same outlet revealed on Saturday morning that the 21-year-old is set to sign a four-year contract with Alex Neil’s side, and had already completed the first segment of his medical, with the second part arranged to take place in Portugal as part of the Championship club’s pre-season training camp.

The Latest: Gold shares transfer fee update

Gold took to Twitter after the news emerged to share what he had heard regarding the valuation that Tottenham would be set to receive for Clarke’s move to Wearside.

He said: “Understand the Jack Clarke fee will be a low initial one but future add-ons could see the deal reach around £10m.”

The Verdict: Coup for Paratici

Clarke was never able to make a strong impact at Spurs, and unfortunately it just hasn’t worked out for him in the way that he no doubt would have hoped.

Considering that the youngster failed to make any Premier League appearances in the three years since joining from Leeds in 2019, it must be considered a massive coup for Tottenham’s director of football Fabio Paratici to bank £10m for a player who has never properly been in and around the first-team picture in N17.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

The York native was a revelation at Sunderland last term, playing a significant role in helping the Black Cats achieve promotion to the Championship, and he will now be able to kick on and begin this new chapter of his career on Wearside, while Spurs receive a handy top-up by cashing in on a fringe player.
