Celtic will sign Cameron Carter-Vickers on a permanent basis from Tottenham in January, according to Spurs insider John Wenham.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers’ Celtic start
Should Celtic sign Carter-Vickers permanently?
No, send him back!
The Latest: Wenham’s comments
Spurs insider Wenham was talking to Football Insider regarding Carter-Vickers.
He believes Celtic will exercise their option to make the defender’s move permanent ‘as soon as January’.
“Celtic, in my opinion, will take up that option to buy him as soon as January.
“He is starting games and scored a goal, they really like him. For whatever reason at Tottenham, he has been there too long without making it.
“Sometimes you need to go elsewhere and establish yourself. Wherever he has been he has done really well.
“I know Luton wanted to keep him and Bournemouth would have kept him but the money wasn’t quite right.
“I think Celtic will end up keeping him.”
The Verdict: Shrewd move?
Should Carter-Vickers continue to impress Postecoglou, making his move permanent in the winter window could be a shrewd decision.
Postecoglou still wants more centre-backs following the summer window, so tying down the USA international on a full-time basis could help him push on.
Celtic Park is Carter-Vickers’ seventh temporary home away from Tottenham, so making it his permanent home may benefit both the Hoops and the defender himself.
