Celtic: Carter-Vickers ‘likely’ to sign

Celtic: Carter-Vickers ‘likely’ to sign -Celtic

Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is likely to sign for Celtic before the transfer window slams shut, according to The Daily Star.

The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers links

The Hoops have been linked with a move to bring the towering centre-back to Parkhead during the current window.

American journalist Larry Henry Jr has shared three updates on the 23-year-old’s future, all of which have name-checked Celtic with an interest.

His first cited the Hoops’ interest, the second suggested the race was down to Celtic, Bournemouth and Newcastle and the third appeared to take the Cherries out of the race.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

The Daily Star’s Aaron Rodgers shared a story regarding a number of Newcastle targets on Thursday lunchtime.

Within his report, Rodgers said Carter-Vickers is wanted by the Magpies. However, he then added that the USA international is ‘likely to join Celtic’ – an interesting four-word update.

The Verdict: A risk

Tottenham are confident they will receive £5m for Carter-Vickers this summer, despite the defender having less than 12 months left on his deal, and it seems as if the Hoops could be the side to match that figure going off recent reports.

Carter-Vickers, on £20,000-a-week with Spurs, has never played Premier League football, so if Celtic do pay Tottenham’s asking price, it could be a risky move.

Ange Postecoglou has just Carl Starfelt, Stephen Welsh and Osaze Urhoghide as fit senior centre-back options at the moment following Kris Ajer’s move to Brentford, so it does appear as if another defender is needed.

Carter-Vickers, who can also play as a right-back, could be that man according to The Daily Star, so it may well be a deal to keep a close eye on over the coming weeks.
