This is what manager Mick McCarthy had to say about Ciaran to the Republic of Ireland website:
“Ciaran is in the same boat. He had to get back with Newcastle before he could back with us but he is playing well for them now and I was impressed with him against West Ham last Saturday.”
Clark returned to the Newcastle team against Manchester United last month making his first start for Newcastle since January. He has now started the last four matches for Newcastle and put in some excellent performances including a goal at West Ham.
His last cap for the Republic of Ireland was in September of 2018. However, he was called up for a match against Denmark in the Nations League last October. Clark has made 32 international appearances with 2 goals.
