Arsenal centre-back Harry Clarke is set to complete a season-long loan move to Scottish Premiership club Ross County in the next seven days (DM).
The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Oldham Athletic but another loan spell away from Arsenal beckons. He has featured in pre-season for the English Premier League club and Dingwall looks likely to be his next destination. It is ‘likely’ that Clarke will complete his move in time for Sunday’s away trip to Hibs.
Ross County manager Malky Mackay is expected to make a raft of signings before the end of the transfer window. They started their Premiership campaign with a 0-0 stalemate at home to St Johnstone, Mackay praising Grenada international Regan Charles-Cook and Canadian midfielder Harry Paton.
Both were involved in the Concacaf Gold Cup until last week. Mackay said: “Two of the boys were in the Gold Cup in America three days ago, and Harry Paton was somewhere over the Atlantic 18 hours ago. For him to fly up from London to here on the morning and then get on the pitch was testament to him.
“Regan Charles-Cook came in and really did well considering he’s been playing in the Gold Cup for Grenada.”
