SUNDERLAND have signed York-born winger Jack Clarke on loan from Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of their season.

The Black Cats have already strengthened their squad this month with the arrivals of Danny Batth and Patrick Roberts but Clarke will add more depth in the wing positions as they battle for automatic promotion in Sky Bet League One.

Clarke joined Spurs for £10million from Leeds in the summer of 2019 but has failed to establish himself, making just four first-team appearances.

His move to the Stadium of Light follows loan spells with Leeds, who he joined Spurs from, QPR and Stoke.

The former Heworth junior told the club's website: "I can't wait to get started. I'm from this part of the world, so I know this is a massive club and what it means to the fans.

"I'm looking forward to playing at the Stadium of Light and the prospect of being part of the team that takes the club back to the Championship.

"I want to help the team as much as possible, whether that's goals or assists, and ensure we reach that end goal."
