Tottenham Hotspur: Cameron Carter-Vickers could leave permanently

Tottenham Hotspur: Cameron Carter-Vickers could leave permanently -Tottenham Hotspur News

Celtic will sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers on a ‘simple’ permanent deal, Lilywhites insider John Wenham has claimed.

The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers having a fine season

The 24-year-old made his mark on Sunday after scoring the winning goal in the Old Firm derby as Celtic beat Rangers 2-1 at Ibrox.

The defender has played 27 times in the Premiership this season and has become a crucial component of the Hoops’ backline. The American averages a phenomenal 4.4 clearances per league game, considerably more than any of his teammates (via WhoScored).

Sky Sports have now reported that Celtic can make the defender’s loan a permanent move for a £6m fee, and talks are already underway about the structure of the deal.

The Latest: Wenham’s claim on Carter-Vickers

Tottenham insider Wenham is backing the deal to go through. Speaking with Football Insider, he claimed:

“Yeah, it’s simple, it just requires Celtic to transfer Tottenham £6million, it’s as simple as that. The player would want it and both clubs want it so there shouldn’t be any problems.

“They could have done it in the summer but the loan has been perfect for Tottenham.  We would have let him go for £2million but we have trebled that price based on his performances.

“I couldn’t be happier with how it has gone because he plays pretty much every game up there. Cameron just isn’t at the level to play for Spurs so I am more than happy to move him on and bank that £6million fee.”

The Verdict: Good move for all involved

Having made just five senior appearances for Tottenham, it seems clear that Carter-Vickers is not going to have a long-term career with the north London club. This may come as a disappointment to some fans, as in 2016, Spurs hero Jan Vertonghen hailed the centre-back as an “absolute beast” during the American’s emergence into the first team.

As a result, it would be in the best interests of Spurs and the 24-year-old to part ways on a permanent basis. This would also suit Celtic, who have enjoyed success with the defender leading their backline.

Therefore, this would no doubt be a good move for all parties involved.
