Celtic: Hoops in talks with Cameron Carter-Vickers

Celtic: Hoops in talks with Cameron Carter-Vickers -Celtic

Celtic have been in talks with Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, according to American reporter Larry Henry Jr.

The Lowdown: Ajer to leave?

The Hoops may still need centre-back reinforcements ahead of the new season. Christopher Jullien is out injured, leaving Ange Postecoglou with Stephen Welsh, new signing Osaze Urhoghide and Kristoffer Ajer as senior options.

The Norwegian wants to leave Celtic Park and Norwich City are keen on the 23-year-old, so the Hoops may still need to bring in another centre-half to have four experienced defenders on the books.

The Latest: Henry Jr’s post

Carter-Vickers, who was hailed as ‘quick’ by Jonathan Woodgate, is on £20,000 per week at Spurs and seems to be of interest to Celtic.

Henry Jr, who reports for SBI Soccer, posted two updates on Carter-Vickers on Twitter on Wednesday, firstly:

“It sounds like the Cameron Carter-Vickers race is down to three teams, per a source close to the player. Newcastle United, Celtic, and Bournemouth back in the mix. Should be a fun few weeks.”

Henry Jr soon added this update, revealing Carter-Vickers’ talks with Celtic:

“Newcastle is still in mix, but going over finances. Celtic has been in talks with Tottenham over a transfer too. Bournemouth’s interest quieted but has since picked back up.”

The Verdict: Look elsewhere

Carter-Vickers has made just four appearances for Tottenham and is valued at £1.8m by Transfermarkt.

Back in May, it was suggested that Spurs would want around £10m for the eight-cap USA international. Should that still be the case, Celtic would need to make him the club’s record signing.

He has just 12 months left on his north London contract, so all things considered, the Hoops shouldn’t pursue a £10m deal. The likes of Mario Vuskovic and Carl Starfelt have also been linked with a Parkhead move, and the Hoops could possibly get the pair for £10m combined.
