Harry Clarke to join Stoke City on loan

Harry Clarke

Harry Clarke will be joining Stoke City on loan for the 2022/23 season.

The 21 year-old defender gained valuable experience in Scotland last season on loan with Premiership clubs Ross County and Hibernian. Harry spent the first half of the campaign with Ross County, impressing during his 17 appearances for the Dingwall based club, before moving to Hibs in January, where he made eight appearances for the Edinburgh side.  

Harry also benefitted from a season-long loan with Oldham Athletic in 2020/21, making 32 appearances for the Latics during the campaign.

The Academy graduate has been with us since 2015, after spending his early years in the youth set-up at hometown club Ipswich Town. Harry signed as a scholar in July 2017, which was followed by his first professional contract in July 2018. He soon became an integral member of our under-23s side and signed a new deal with us in December 2019.

Harry was a member of the travelling party for the first team’s training camp in Scotland at the start of last season. The England Youth international started the friendly match against Hibernian, playing in central defence for the first half.

We wish Harry all the best next season with Stoke City.

The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
