The lowdown: Talks held
This comes following a report from SBI Soccer claiming that the Hoops had held advanced talks over the last week with Tottenham regarding the future of the 24-year-old.
Despite claims of interest from Wolves, Leicester City, and Watford, Celtic appear to remain in the hot seat to sign the USA international, with the American source detailing a £6m initial fee which could rise to £10m.
Now a fresh update has emerged from London, with the reliable Gold backing the American press…
The latest: Gold expects move
It’s claimed that the Glasgow giants will indeed pay £6million up front.
Furthermore, the report states that the loan switch has been a ‘big success’ for the man recently hailed as ‘immense’ by Chris Sutton following a match-winning display against Rangers containing seven successful aerial duels, eight clearances and 31 accurate passes (Sofascore).
The verdict: No brainer
Given the levels of performance from Carter-Vickers this season, it would be regarded as a major oversight were Celtic to miss out on the capture – he has been hailed as ‘quick‘ by Jonathan Woodgate, and has used that athleticism to take like a duck to water to life in the Scottish Premiership.
Will Celtic win the title?
I'm not so sure!
Forging a healthy understanding alongside Carl Starfelt, the Bhoys have kept the most clean sheets in the Scottish Premiership this campaign with 18, a record that has taken Ange Postecoglou’s side to the brink of the title.
