Pundit thinks ‘unplayable’ Sunderland gem should be playing in the Premier League

Jack Clarke has been told by Sunderland that he should not be playing in the Championship.

According to Adrian Clarke of the What the EFL?! Podcast, the Sunderland winger is “unplayable.”
Jack Clarke has been on fire this season, already matching his nine-goal total from last season in 33 fewer games. The forward also registered his first assist against Norwich City, with a beautiful ball into Dan Neil.

For much of the year, Clarke has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Burnley previously rejecting bids of around £10 million.

However, the race for his signature has heated up with Crystal Palace and Brentford joining the fray.

Although it is unclear whether Clarke would want to leave Wearside, Adrian Clarke has stated that he should not be playing in the Championship.

“Jack Clarke is unplayable,” he said. He looks like a Premier League star when he’s in this form. It’s someone playing in the wrong league.

“He had 14 dribbles in this game, six shots, I love the run and pass for the Dan Neil goal, scored himself of course.”He’s a lovely ball carrier, and listening to Tony Mowbray talk about him, ‘unlocking the mystery,’ he basically says he’s a bit unique, one of a kind, so he needs to be managed carefully, but it’s the right match.”

Can Sunderland keep Jack Clarke?

Jack Clarke is clearly one of the best players in the Championship right now, and he will be the main man for Sunderland if they are to win promotion this season.

However, there is always the possibility that this does not occur, in which case the Black Cats would be extremely lucky not to lose the 22-year-old.

Clarke is unquestionably a Premier League player, and a move to Brighton or Crystal Palace would be ideal for him to progress – as difficult as it would be to see from the perspective of a Sunderland fan.

Mowbray’s team simply cannot afford to lose him in January, but they may have to accept defeat if a large offer arrives next summer. Especially if Sunderland is set to play another season in the second tier.
