A committed defender, Clarke has gained plenty of experience out on loan and will be spending this season in the Championship with Stoke City.

In January 2022 Clarke joined Hibernian on an 18-month loan deal. Although he endured a frustrating start due to injury Clarke recovered to finish last season strongly before the deal was cut short to allow him to head to Stoke.

Prior to that Clarke had loan spells at Oldham Athletic and Ross County.

Signed from Ipswich Town as a schoolboy, Clarke featured prominently for Arsenal at youth level and helped the U18s to win the southern section title in the 2018/19 campaign.

Clarke has yet to make a competitive senior appearance for Arsenal but did feature in a friendly against Hibernian in 2021.

Previously mainly a centre-back, he now sees himself as a right-back.
