Celtic: Hoops keen on Cameron Carter-Vickers

Celtic: Hoops keen on Cameron Carter-Vickers - Celtic

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.

The 23-year-old, primarily a centre-back but can also play as a right-back, has turned out for Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke City, Luton Town and most recently, Bournemouth.

He’s made over 100 appearances in the Championship and has played for Spurs on just four occasions.

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

Henry Jr, editor of USA Today-affiliated site SBI Soccer, posted on Twitter on Tuesday evening regarding Carter-Vickers.

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.”

Henry Jr added that any deal for the centre-back, who Jonathan Woodgate described as ‘quick’, would be a permanent one, not a loan.

The Verdict: An ideal match on paper

Celtic have already lost two right-backs in 2021 in Jeremie Frimpong and Hatem Elhamed, so Carter-Vickers could provide cover in that area.

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.
