Player Review

Matt Clarke is a center back for Derby County, on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion. Having had a very strong season for Portsmouth in League One, Clarke was signed by Brighton in July 2019 for a fee of £3.9 million on a 4 year contract, but was sent out on loan this season to Derby County. Clarke has had a strong season making the step up in the Championship, averaging 55 passes per game, is strong in the air and has a lot of potential to improve further and possibly make the next step up to the Premier League next season. Clarke only has 1 goal in the Championship and 0 assists and as a center back playing for a relatively weak Premier League side, he would be very unlikely to compete for Match Day dividends often.

Price Analysis

Matt Clarke's price started the season at around £0.45, but due to having no access to earning dividends this season declined to £0.36 in October 2019 and has remained relatively stagnant since hovering between £0.34-£0.37. With the introduction of the Matching Engine, it may be even more difficult to sell Clarke for a reasonable price with a current instant sell price of just £0.16. For buyers, it is reasonably likely that he could be bought for a considerable discount using a matched bid. Clarke has had a strong season at Derby, but does not have the characteristics which would make him likely to compete for match day dividends and so his price ceiling appears fairly low. Brighton already have Dunk, Duffy and Webster and so it may be hard for Clarke to break into the Brighton side which would result in Clarke's price remaining stagnant. In the short term, whilst Clarke remains at Derby, assuming his loan this season is extended, his price will remain fairly stagnant. Longer term, if Clarke can break into the Brighton side, there is certainly room for his price to grow and there is also a very outside chance that if he performs exceptionally well in the Premier League - he could gain an England call-up longer term which of course would lead to a considerable rise in price. Overall, Clarke appears a fairly unattractive hold as he currently has little to no access of earning dividends and his future prospects of earning dividends currently remain low.
