Tottenham winger Jack Clarke is in talks over a loan move to Stoke City.

Other Championship clubs have shown interest but Stoke are now leading the way.
Manager Michael O’Neill has been busy in this window having secured Rabbi Matondo from Schalke and left back Rhys Norrington-Davies from Sheffield United.
He also hopes to add Aston Villa’s Keinan Davis after injuries sidelined Tyrese Campbell and Steven Fletcher.
Stoke have also won the race for Charlton’s Alfie Doughty though he will remain with the League One side on loan.

Clarke has found opportunities hard to come by at Tottenham with the likes of Gareth Bale and Steven Bergwijn ahead of him.
They are also weighing up wingers for the summer though expect a quiet January.
Jose Mourinho would prefer to add cover at defensive midfield and centre back if the chance arose for this window.
Question marks remain over the future of Davinson Sanchez while Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga are available if offers come in.
