Celtic have dropped their interest in Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, according to The Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Deadline day links
Ange Postecoglou was on the hunt to land a centre-back on a temporary basis on Tuesday.
It now seems as if a move for the 23-year-old, labelled as ‘quick’ by Jonathan Woodgate, won’t materialise.
How would you rate Celtic's window?
It's been alright!
Not good at all!
The Latest: Source shares update
The Daily Record shared a story on Tuesday afternoon, shortly after the links to Carter-Vickers emerged.
They were informed by a source close to the defender that the ‘door has closed’ on Carter-Vickers, with the Hoops dropping their interest.
The Verdict: All focus on attackers
With Carter-Vickers not looking like a Celtic addition before the deadline closes, all focus should be on getting two attacking targets signed up.
Ange Postecoglou already has five senior centre-backs, so not landing Carter-Vickers shouldn’t be the end of the world.
However, if Celtic sell Odsonne Edouard and Ryan Christie and fail to land their replacements, then the Hoops could have an issue.
