Celtic are interested in signing Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, according to USA journalist Larry Henry Jr.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers profiled
Carter-Vickers has eight caps for the USA and has plied his trade at a number of clubs in England while on the books of Tottenham.
It seems as of his stay in north London could come to an end soon, though, with a move to Scotland possibly on the cards.
The Latest: Late night links
He claimed that the Hoops have shown an interest in the £20,000-a-week defender.
“Another Cameron Carter-Vickers update per source close to the player: Scottish club Celtic has shown interest in acquiring him from Tottenham this summer. Fulham/Cardiff City interest has quieted a bit.”
The Verdict: An ideal match on paper
However, you’d expect him to turn out in his favoured centre-back role, should he link up with Ange Postecoglou at Parkhead.
Kristoffer Ajer has made his intentions to leave the Hoops this summer clear, so should a Celtic exit materialise, Postecoglou would be left with Stephen Welsh and Christopher Jullien as senior centre-back options.
On paper, a move for Carter-Vickers appears to be a sensible one, so it may well be one to keep a close eye on over the coming weeks.
