Breaking News: What Could Have Been Of Burnley And Leicester Interested In Signing Sunderland Brilliant Player

Sunderland are reportedly prepared to hand winger Jack Clarke a new deal at the club amid interest from Burnley and other Premier League outfits.

The former England youth international enjoyed a stellar campaign at the Stadium of Light last season, scoring nine goals and 11 assists, helping the Black Cats reach the playoffs on their return to the Championship.

Clarke has continued his good form during the new term, with the 22-year-old making the net ripple on eight occasions in 13 Championship matches as Sunderland look to gain promotion to the Premier League.


The attacker scored six goals in September, including braces against Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn Rovers, to earn him the title of Player of the Month for the second tier.

The Black Cats will intensify their efforts to hold onto Clarke as Sunderland is eager to keep him past the forthcoming January and summer windows, according to the Sunderland Echo.

According to the report, Tony Mowbray’s team is considering offering the Englishman new terms at the Stadium of Light in response to interest from several elite teams in hiring him as a winger.

Although there is no pressure on Sunderland to move Clarke anytime soon—his present contract in the North-East expires in the summer of 2026—it is known that the Black Cats want the player to pledge his long-term future to the group.

The winger moved permanently from North London for £1 million in July 2022, having spent the second half of Sunderland’s 2021–22 promotion-winning season on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

It’s thought that Burnley made many bids for Clarke, the highest of which was £10 million, after such a successful season for Mowbray’s team; however, all of the Clarets’ advances were turned down.

Leicester City are Still Interested  In Jack Clarke

In the later part of the summer transfer window, Sunderland found themselves once again in dire need of an attacker. However, supporters were ecstatic when Jack Clarke joined from Leicester on loan.

The 22-year-old was well-liked at Stamford Bridge after scoring 10 goals in 25 games for the U-21 team. Earlier in the season, he was given two cameos in the Premier League.


According to recent reports, Clarke is admired by Brentford, Crystal Palace, Brighton & Hove Albion, Bournemouth, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. This means that Vincent Kompany’s team will have fierce competition in their attempt to sign the attacker.

Although it is known that Sunderland want to receive at least £20 million from Clarke’s sale should he leave, the most recent information indicates that the Black Cats may attempt to retain Clarke by offering him a new contract.

Burnley moved on to other targets, such as Mike Tresor and Luca Koleosho, who could improve their prospects of surviving in the Premier League, after missing out on signing the 22-year-old in the summer.

Lyle Foster, a South African, has scored three of the Clarets’ seven goals in the top tier in the team’s first nine games. This is despite the arrival of several teenagers who are talented attackers.


When the Sunderland players take on Norwich City at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, Clarke and the rest of the club will be looking to avoid losing four straight games in the Championship.
