Celtic defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is attracting interest from a number of English sides, according to SBI Soccer’s Larry Henry Jr.
The Lowdown: Option to buy
The Hoops brought in the 24-year-old on a season-long loan from Tottenham late in the summer transfer window and have the option to make a move permanent in the summer.
He was recently described as a ‘big player’ by Callum McGregor, but it appears as if the Hoops may have serious competition for his services.
The Latest: Four clubs keen on Carter-Vickers
He revealed that Leicester City and Wolves headline the newest quartet of English clubs showing an interest in the 24-year-old, along with Watford and Bournemouth.
The Verdict: Carter-Vickers’ choice
Even though Celtic have the option to make a move permanent, ultimately Carter-Vickers will be the one to decide his next move.
Hopefully he will be open to signing terms in Glasgow and won’t be tempted by a Premier League switch, especially as he has missed just one Premiership encounter since joining the Hoops.
No Celtic player has made more clearances per game or has been dribbled past on fewer occasions than the American centre-back, as per WhoScored, so a permanent deal could make sense for all involved.
