Will West Brom be promoted next season?
Having made 81 appearances in the Championship, he would bring a huge amount of experience at the age of just 24, so he would be a signing for the present and the future.
What have these fans been saying?
“Could do with a good new defender tbf”
“Did well with Derby last season, started up by the skin of their teeth.”
“GET IN! MAASSSSIIIII!!!!”
“Reincarnation of Dawson”
“Left-footed in a back 3 who is arguably as good as people next to him is not a bad signing”
Clarke is a left-footed centre back, which could allow Valerien Ismael to add balance to his side if he is wanting to deploy a back three next season – which was a system often used by the new Baggies boss at Barnsley last year.
At just 24 years old, Clarke has already made 261 senior appearances for clubs such as Ipswich Town, Portsmouth and Derby County.
The defender has also found the net 10 times, with nine of them coming during his time at Pompey, which may have prompted Brighton to buy him in 2019 – though it seems he could trade them for a different Albion this summer.
