Writing on Twitter, American reporter Larry Henry Jr has dropped an exit update involving Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers on the move?
The USA international has been touted as one of the names to leave this summer as Tottenham aim to adopt a sell-to-buy policy (football.london).
So far, Spurs have only been able to offload Juan Foyth after Villarreal triggered his loan-to-buy option.
Tottenham could want to sell Carter-Vickers this summer with his deal running out in 2022.
The Latest: Reporter drops Carter-Vickers update…
Writing on Twitter, US journalist Henry Jr has dropped a Carter-Vickers update.
He claims that Celtic have been in talks with Tottenham over a possible transfer this summer while Newcastle United and Bournemouth are also ‘back in the mix’.
“It sounds like the Cameron Carter-Vickers race is down to three teams, per a source close to the player.
“Newcastle United, Celtic, and Bournemouth back in the mix. Should be a fun few weeks.
“Newcastle is still in mix, but going over finances. Celtic has been in talks with Tottenham over a transfer too. Bournemouth’s interest quieted but has since picked back up.”
The Verdict: Good news?
This could come as a financial boost for Tottenham if they do in fact aim to offload Carter-Vickers this summer.
The interest in him appears to be heating up from a number of interested parties but what remains to be seen is how much Daniel Levy will want for his services.
Still young, Carter-Vickers also enjoyed a successful stint on loan at Bournemouth over 2020/2021 – where he managed the second most clearances per 90 (3.6) out of the Cherries squad (WhoScored).
We believe Levy and co could command a reasonable fee for his sale this summer, and the income generated by his potential sale could be re-invested in the Spurs first-team squad.
