Celtic tipped to make another loan approach for £9.5m ace after missing out in January

Celtic have proven they are a great destination for talented players from the Premier League to develop and impress when they struggle for playing time with their current clubs.

Recently we’ve seen Patrick Roberts, Jason Denayer and Jeremie Frimpong take a big leap by playing at the club, so it seems like an obvious link to make for some players.

Jack Clarke is a talented winger, he’s got pace and can play on either flank so he certainly looks like an intriguing prospect, but it’s hard to see him getting  many chances under Jose Mourinho.

At Celtic he would play in a dominant side where he would get a chance to get on the ball and create, so this link from Football Insider is an interesting one.

They claim that Celtic tried to make a move for Clark in January, and even point out that Spurs paid a fee of around £9.5m to sign him in the first place.

Obviously that approach failed, but it’s suggested that Celtic could try and take him on loan again this Summer.

He’s yet to play for Spurs so it’s hard to see him getting a chance anytime soon, and he could be a handy replacement for Mohamed Elyounoussi if he does return to Southampton.

When you consider how much Tottenham paid for him it’s hard to see there being any potential for a permanent deal at the end of this, but it could be an exciting signing.
