Jack Clarke (Stoke City)
The 20-year-old winger is now back at Tottenham after his Stoke City loan ended with an ankle injury.
Potters boss Michael O’Neill said of Clarke on Friday: “Jack is not yet gone but he will be leaving this week. Unfortunately he will not be playing again this season, he has ligament injuries to his ankle. He had a CT scan yesterday, so it’s disappointing.
“We could have done with him. I think we have 10 injured players.
“We could have done more with him in the last eight games of the season. It’s never nice when a loan is cut like that.”
“He’s had a bit of trouble getting started in recent weeks because the system has made it difficult for him, but overall we’re happy with the contribution he’s made.”
Clarke has made 14 appearances for Stoke, claiming two assists, and had appeared twice in the Europa League for Spurs and once in the FA Cup this campaign.
Oliver Skipp (Norwich City)
Oliver skipp played just eight minutes off the bench for Norwich on Friday after playing just two days before for England U21s.
Skipp was part of the squad that crashed from the European Under-21 Championship last week following disappointing performances from the young Lions.

The 19-year-old is now hoping to add to his only goal this season in 13 appearances since joining Ipswich in January.
Juan Foyth (Villarreal)
Foyth was not in the squad as Villarreal won 3-0 in Granada on Saturday, which is a rarity for the young Argentinian this season.
He went a fortnight without matches due to the postponement of South American qualifying and this allowed him to spend time with his wife and recently born son.
The 23-year-old has spent much of this season playing either right-back, center-back or a defensive midfielder role for Unai Emery’s side.
Foyth has become an important part of the Villarreal squad in recent weeks after a slow start to his time in Spain.
Villarreal have the option of buying Foyth at the end of his loan spell in Spain and he has now made 25 appearances for his loan club, including 13 in La Liga.
Paulo Gazzaniga (Elche)
Foyth’s compatriot and Spurs goalkeeper has yet to make his first appearance for Elche.
Gazzaniga, 29, came to Spain in search of playing time, but so far Edgar Badia has retained his place in goal.

Cameron Carter-Vickers (Bournemouth)

Harvey White (Portsmouth)

Portsmouth has the new manager at the helm following the sacking of Kenny Jackett after four years at the helm.
White made his debut for Spurs this season in the Europa League before getting 90 minutes under Jose Mourinho in the FA Cup third round victory at Marine.
TJ Eyoma (Lincoln City)
Eyoma has seen its progress halted by a Covid outbreak in Lincoln which has seen their Easter games postponed.

Jubril Okedina (Cambridge United)

“His attitude, defensive skills and athleticism make him a good addition,” Cambridge head coach Mark Bonner said when the center-back signed in the January window.

Shilow Tracey (Cambridge United)
Okedina’s Cambridge and Spurs teammate got minutes off the bench in one of the matches.
Tracey played the last 15 minutes of the win over Morecambe but was then an unused substitute at Tranmere.

“I like to play on the shoulder and get behind the defenses, I would say that’s my specialty. This is the farthest I have been to the north. Sunderland has been a big change for me, but it’s a whole different experience.
“The Champions League was an amazing experience. It was unreal, the fans, the vibe. I can play in the middle but I can also play on either side. Hopefully Morton fans see a lot of goals and entertainment.”
