​Sunderland youngster Clarke learnt from tough Tottenham spell


 Sunderland youngster Jack Clarke insists he has no regrets about moving from Leeds United to Tottenham.

He burst onto the scene with the Elland Road club, before moving to Spurs in 2019 after playing 22 games for Leeds in the Championship in 2018-2019.

Now the winger is with Sunderland, failing to make the grade with the Premier League club.

"It was a difficult one really," Clarke told the Sunderland Echo.

"Looking back on it, it never really materialised in the way I wanted it to or into anything, but I wouldn't say I'd do anything differently.

"I still took the opportunity, I tried my best when I was there and obviously it wasn't meant to be. I'm glad I made the switch when I did and I'm enjoying being here now.

"I think with the players that are there at Tottenham and the management and everything else there, there's always an opportunity to learn. I'd say the majority of learning is who you are on the training pitch and then in a game it's just your time to show it.

"I feel like it still developed me as a player behind the scenes and now it's a chance and an opportunity for me to show what I did learn and what sort of player I am."
