Celtic could look to sign Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan with an option to buy, according to The Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers profiled
Carter-Vickers has been linked with a move to Parkhead for some time now.
The 23-year-old, primarily a centre-back who can also play at right-back, has less than 12 months remaining on his Spurs contract. He’s had six separate loan spells away from Tottenham, one of which was with Luton Town, where then-team-mate Sonny Bradley described Carter-Vickers’ as ‘fantastic’.
The Latest: Loan to buy?
The Daily Record’s live transfer blog on Monday (22:43) shared some interesting news on Celtic’s interest in Carter-Vickers.
They suggested that Carter-Vickers would want to leave on a permanent basis, if he does indeed depart north London this summer.
However, Celtic are thought to be exploring a loan with a possibility to buy for £5m, with The Daily Record believing that is a ‘live option’.
Would Carter-Vickers be a good signing for Celtic?
The Verdict: Could be Celtic’s biggest signing of the summer
It appears as if the Hoops are looking at a potential loan with an option to make it permanent next year.
However, should Celtic decide to sign Carter-Vickers this summer on a permanent basis instead, he seems likely to be the club’s most expensive addition of the window due to Spurs’ £5m valuation, surpassing a £4.86m deal for Kyogo Furuhashi.
It appears as if a deal for the American should be one to keep a close eye on, especially as Celtic are short of senior centre-back options following Kristoffer Ajer’s exit and Christopher Jullien’s injury and hence could look to push through a deal relatively quickly.
