Clark has brought in 24-year-old central midfielder Rohan Ince on a season-long loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, although the deal does have a recall clause that cannot be activated until after Christmas, the loan deal with Bury will end on 31 May 2018.
Clark told the club's website: “Rohan is a player that has been on the radar for a while. The Chairman, Alan Thompson and I went down to Brighton on Tuesday to watch him play for Brighton and he was very impressive for them.
“He will bring a presence to the team and is a very good footballer, he plays it simple and plays it effectively and I believe he will be a big player for us in every sense of the word, both in his physicality and in his play.
“He is an established Championship player and unfortunately for him, Brighton have gone to the next level. Once we found out he was available, we went for him. I am more than delighted to get him in.
“I just felt that since losing Stephen Dawson in the Sunderland game, it has taken something away from our team in terms of drive and leadership, so I had to address it. We have some exciting attacking players in the group and we need to get them on the ball more than we have in the previous games, and Rohan will help us do that."
