Report: Spurs winger Jack Clarke wanted by Millwall and Preston

Jack Clarke could be offered an immediate return to the Championship promotion race, with Millwall and Preston North End keen on signing the Tottenham Hotspur winger on loan, according to a report from The Sun (4/1; page 67).

Clarke is back at Spurs after having his loan spell at Leeds United cut short. The 19-year-old made one league appearance for the Whites following his £10 million summer move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But it would be no surprise to see the wide-man leave Tottenham before the end of the month. And it appears that he may get an opportunity with two sides also looking to go up this season.

The Sun (4/1; page 67) reports that both Alex Neil’s side and the Lions are interested in signing Clarke as they both look to get themselves back into the play-off positions.

Millwall sit seventh in the second tier, one point off the top six. Meanwhile, Preston are 10th in the table, but are only one point worse off.

The Lilywhites had been in and around the automatic-promotion spots for much of the campaign. And Neil will surely be confident that they will return to the top six at some stage.

Millwall have made a brilliant surge up the table under Gary Rowett. They have lost one game since early November and have won their last two.

Interestingly, should Clarke join Millwall, one of his first appearances could come against Leeds. The Lions travel to Elland Road before the end of the month.

And after a difficult start to the campaign, there may be no better way for the Tottenham man to announce himself than to make an impact against his old side given that they currently lead the way in the Championship.
