Club issue injury update on Jack Clarke

Sunderland A.F.C have issued an injury update statement on Jack Clarke.

The 23-year-old sustained an ankle ligament injury during the Club’s trip to Birmingham City and he subsequently missed last weekend’s fixture against Swansea City.

Further assessments of the injury have now been completed, with the winger expected to be out of action for up to six weeks.

The Club’s leading scorer with 15 goals and four assists, Clarke will now undergo a period of rehabilitation before an anticipated return to training in April.
