Report: Preston looking at loan move for Bobby Clark

Preston North End is hoping to take exciting talent Bobby Clark on loan for the second half of the season.


Clark has impressed all observers in the youth setup since joining from Newcastle United in August 2021, the club where his father Lee made over 200 appearances over two separate stints.


The 17 year-old attacking midfielder scored 13 goals from 23 appearances in the U/18s during the 2021/22 season as well as getting experience in the Premier League 2 competition during this campaign.


His progress has certainly caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp who has given him exposure in the pre-season tour of Asia and also made his Premier League debut in the 9-0 rout against Bournemouth.




In more recent times Clark made more positive steps forward on the mid season training camp in Dubai providing a delightful assist for Darwin Nunez in the big win against AC Milan and earning due praise from the manager.


Clark recently discussed the tough decision in leaving a club that means so much to his family, but is already indebted to the opportunities given to him at the Reds.


“Obviously it was tough moving from my hometown at the start but I've settled in really well now. I came here and I've been given opportunities already, which I'm grateful for. Hopefully, I can carry on getting them."


Liverpool has a good knack of sending promising players away on loan and finding the right club to nurture their talents.


Harvey Elliott reaped the benefits at Blackburn, and Tyler Morton is currently receiving rave reviews over his performances at the same club.


Sepp van den Berg had a very successful two-season stint at Preston before moving on to Schalke for this season.


Deepdale Digest report that Preston would like to take Clark on and give him  first team opportunities as they aim for a playoff spot in the Championship.


The word coming out of Liverpool is that they are more than likely to hold onto Clark for the rest of this season.


But if there is a change of thought from Liverpool in the weeks ahead or even next season, expect Preston and their progressive minded manager Ryan Lowe to be at the front of the queue.
