Birmingham Mail reporter Brian Dick has tweeted today that Jack Clarke will not be joining Birmingham City.
The rumour originated from ‘bluesnewsgold’, which in turn was fabricated into a widespread story as it was backed by other online sources.
Twitter: I have been told Jack Clarke is not joining Birmingham City from Tottenham. #bcfc #thfc
Shame, would have been a good one. (@briandick)
However it seems the suggested ‘deal’ is now off with confirmation from Clarke’s agent the story was infact ‘not true’.
Twitter: Not true!!! https://t.co/SFPIcybjIs (@ianharte23)
Blues fans will feel less frustrated with this news as Karanka’s side is already well equipped in the winger department.
Ivan Sanchez and Jeremie Bela are one of the first names on the team sheet and if the Jack Clarke rumours were true, it would be hard to see where he would get any game time.
With a couple of weeks left of the transfer window, Karanka and Dong may have another ace up there sleeve with 9 signings already under their belt this window.
Where do you think we still need extra cover? Let us know on Twitter @bluesfocus.
