According to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Championship pair Blackburn Rovers and Brentford are interested in former Hull City left-back Max Clark, who currently plays in The Netherlands with Vitesse Arnhem.
With the transfer window slamming shut on Thursday evening, clubs have just a matter of days to tie up any final deals and Championship duo Blackburn Rovers and Brentford are said to be keeping an eye on Vitesse Arnhem defender Max Clark as a possible transfer target.
The former Hull City left-back was watched by Rovers and The Bees as Vitesse opened their season with a 2-2 draw against Ajax, journalist Alan Nixon has revealed. Nixon tweeted the news on Sunday morning, saying:
BLACKBURN and BRENTFORD. Watched Max Clark, ex Hull left back now at Vitesse. Played v Ajax last night. Poss return.

Brentford had been keen on Marc Bola to come in and provide some competition for Rico Henry at left-back, but the former Arsenal youngster has joined Middlesbrough. The Bees will have to look elsewhere if they want to bring in another left-back this summer and Clark could be their man.
Blackburn Rovers are also in need of defensive reinforcements before the end of the transfer window, but they already have Derrick Williams and Amari’i Bell in at left-back, so it seems surprising that they would look to bring in another left-back.
Clark came through the youth academy with Hull City, making his way through the youth sides before going on to play 30 times for the senior side. He spent a season on loan with Cambridge United, where he played 44 times, scoring once and assisting four goals. Since joining Vitesse on a free transfer last summer, The 23-year-old has made 31 appearances, netting twice and providing four assists.
