Clark originally signed the Northern Ireland international on an emergency loan in March, only to swiftly extend his stay until the end of the season.

But the former Newcastle player could go back to his old club a third time for Ferguson as he plots a Championship play-off push next term.

Clark told the Chronicle: "Fergie came in for us last season and was brilliant.

"He was great at left wing and left-back, he made goals and scored goals.

"He's a big part of what I am trying to do. I'm trying to turn the club around.

"With the financial situation, the young players I've got are important. I gave six Academy players their debuts this season."

Clark is also understood to be interested in Wales U21 left-back Paul Dummett, who has been told he can leave the Magpies on loan for first-team experience.

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
