Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jack Clarke has joined Queens Park Rangers on loan for the rest of the season.
Following the news that Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jack Clarke has joined Queens Park Rangers on loan, a number of QPR fans have been commenting on the prospect of the Spurs ace turning out for them.
The Leeds United academy graduate joined Tottenham for an undisclosed fee – reported by Sky Sports News as £8.5million – last summer and, with Mauricio Pochettino’s blessing, made an instant return to Elland Road on loan for the 2019-20 season.
However, Clarke ended up playing just 19 minutes of Championship football for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this term, with only the League Cup providing the 19-year-old with any meaningful senior football, though that came to an end with a second-round exit.
As a result, Tottenham recalled the 19-year-old – who can play on the wing or up front – and, on Thursday, confirmed that he has been loaned to QPR – who face Leeds at Loftus Road in the Championship this weekend.
Here is what some QPR fans have said on social media about the announcement:

welcome jack— Liam 〰️ (@LiamQPRFC_) January 16, 2020
Excellent deal if he’s a decent center half or good between the sticks. If not, it’s shambolic and shows how deluded the DOF is. Cos we really have problems going forward, given we’re the 2nd highest scorers in the division. Obviously they’re happy conceding 1.9 goals per game!— Darren (@DazzerQPR) January 16, 2020
Welcome to QPR! Wish you all the best.— malcolm jacobus (@maljacqpr) January 16, 2020
Good luck to the lad— Paul Finney (@paulfinney1969) January 16, 2020
But Paul – a speedy (tho admittedly v good) winger should not be high on our list of priorities. Why not a CB, a goalkeeper, a right back? #QPR— Christian Wolmar (@christianwolmar) January 16, 2020
Whilst I’m glad for him and hope does well, that ain’t a centre-back, chief.— James Honke (@JamesHonke) January 16, 2020
Good luck hope he does well however seems a little pointless. Especially if he plays ahead of are young talent— Chris (@kingwoodee) January 16, 2020
What a signing— Countdown Theory (@C4Octochamp) January 16, 2020
Clarke will wear squad number 47 at QPR, the same number he wore at Leeds.
