According to a report by Football Insider, Spurs have instructed USA international Cameron Carter-Vickers to find a new club before the 5pm deadline today – with the outlet now tipping Bournemouth to make a move after Tottenham slashed their asking price.
Indeed, as per this report, the Cherries are seriously considering a permanent deal and are now being tipped to land Carter-Vickers as the late afternoon cut off nears.
Should Tottenham sell Carter-Vickers?
Carter-Vickers set for Spurs exit
Chairman Daniel Levy is allegedly pursuing a permanent sale for the defender and will entertain offers as low as £3 million in order to negotiate a successful last-minute agreement.
The 6ft 1 colossus has spent time on loan at various clubs over the last few seasons, including Sheffield United, Ipswich, Swansea, Stoke and Luton, but the Lilywhites now want to offload him permanently as they attempt to balance the books (Football Insider).
After signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius, famously dubbed the ‘super six’, Levy will have to trim the wage bill and any players who are surplus to requirements.
Carter-Vickers, despite a great loan spell at Luton last campaign, isn’t part of Jose Mourinho’s plans and now looks set for the exit door.
Transfer Tavern take
Given that Tottenham failed to bring in a natural centre-back over the summer window, with talks still apparently in the balance over Joe Rodon, the ‘fantastic‘ defender could have been a worthy back-up option.
Club legend Jan Vertonghen took notice of his rise early on, lauding the American as an ‘absolute beast‘ back in 2016.
In a late transfer twist, it now looks like Carter-Vickers is set to be offloaded on a permanent deal, but only time will tell whether Levy lives to regret that decision.
