According to Football Insider, a Tottenham Hotspur source has made a transfer deadline day revelation involving 8-cap USA international Cameron Carter-Vickers and Torino.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers secures last gasp move…
Carter-Vickers did in fact manage to secure a move north of the border to Celtic in the final hours of deadline day.
Indeed, the 23-year-old joins former Spurs goalkeeper Joe Hart in Ange Postecoglou’s quest to restore the Parkhead side’s dominance of Scottish football from arch rivals Rangers.
However, before the centre-back agreed to an SPFL switch, a Spurs source has explained that another side tried to get in there first.
The Latest: Carter-Vickers rejects Torino move…
As per Football Insider’s Lilywhites source, Carter-Vickers rejected a last minute move to Torino before his agreement to join Celtic.
Chairman Daniel Levy even personally signed off on the transfer and accepted a loan bid from the Serie A side.
However, Carter-Vickers himself said no as he preferred to stay in the United Kingdom – later revealing to Celtic TV that Hart played a major hand in convincing him to join the Bhoys.
The Verdict: In for a ride…
Choosing Celtic over the Italians certainly comes as the right move if he wants to part of an interesting campaign.
All eyes are on the Hoops and Postecoglou’s full debut season in charge of the club, especially after Rangers dominated the Scottish top flight last season.
For Carter-Vickers, if he can impress, this loan move could be the start of a promising career.
