Sunderland’s Jack Clarke is poised to depart the club if they fall short of securing promotion to the Premier League, amid reported interest from West Ham United.

According to Football Insider, the winger is set on leaving Sunderland if they do not achieve promotion to the top flight next season, with several high-profile clubs, including West Ham United, expressing interest.

Sunderland, led by Michael Beale, are in a favorable position for consecutive seasons, eyeing a potential playoff spot. While they missed out on promotion through the playoffs in the previous season, they aim to improve their performance this time around.

The consequences of not reaching the playoffs or failing to secure promotion could be significant for Sunderland, as key player Jack Clarke might reportedly seek an exit. The 13-goal attacker has garnered attention from various Premier League clubs, with West Ham United showing particular interest.

David Moyes, West Ham’s manager, has been in search of a left winger since the summer, and Clarke appears to fit the desired profile. The competition for Clarke’s signature includes Crystal Palace, as the Sunderland star is expected to make a crucial decision in the upcoming close season.

Despite his success in the Championship, Clarke has previously experienced Premier League football with Tottenham, where he had a limited impact before moving on. His consistent performances at Sunderland have reignited interest, and he is likely to have multiple suitors, potentially including Brentford, along with the current contenders West Ham and Crystal Palace, as suggested by some reports.

Regardless of Sunderland’s promotion fate, Clarke seems destined to make a notable impact in the Premier League.
