Writing for Football.London, reliable Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold has claimed that manager Jose Mourinho has an ‘interesting‘ decision to make regarding the future of USA international Cameron Carter-Vickers at the club, claiming the Portuguese boss has ‘clearly liked’ what he’s seen of the player.
Carter-Vickers, who has been playing his best football over 2020 according to Gold, helped Luton Town avoid relegation back to League One last season as they narrowly stayed in the Championship, and the 6 ft 1 sensation was arguably a huge part of their late surge in form.
Alongside newly-appointed manager Nathan Jones, who was also a key figure, Luton managed to swerve the drop back to England’s third tier,with Mourinho now facing a tough decision over whether to stick or twist with the 22-year-old colossus.
Should Spurs keep, sell or loan out Carter-Vickers?
Ex-Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed that the American could develop into ‘one of the best centre-backs in England’, as relayed by Gold for Football.London, but a series of loan spells forced Carter-Vickers to finally start developing.
He has been sent out on temporary moves to Sheffield United, Ipswich, Swansea, Stoke and Luton over the last three years, but the youngster’s contract expires at the end of the season, leaving chairman Daniel Levy and manager Mourinho with a choice to make regarding his future.
Amassing eight international caps and making his debut at just 19-years-old, it seems that the sky is the limit for this young, up-and-coming centre-back.
Ex-Luton teammate Sonny Bradley described Carter-Vickers as ‘fantastic‘ when playing alongside him, and Gold believes it will be intriguing to see how the club move forward.
