Writing on Twitter, journalist and BBC broadcaster Kris Temple has lifted the lid on a significant transfer development involving Tottenham Hotspur and defender Cameron Carter-Vickers.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers at the Cherries…
Bournemouth signed the USA international on a season-long loan at the beginning of 2020/2021, and he went on to have a pretty successful spell on the south coast.
Indeed, the 23-year-old started 23 Championship games for the Cherries and was an assured, reliable presence in their backline when handed the nod – forcing the most offsides per 90 out of any player in the squad and making the joint-second most blocks (WhoScored).
The Latest: Journalist shares big Carter-Vickers development
Bringing the latest on his future, journalist Temple now believes that the second tier side have made contact with Tottenham over securing the defender on a permanent basis.
Indeed, Bournemouth have apparently been so impressed with Carter-Vickers they now wish to make him a permanent Cherries star.
“I can report that #AFCB have made contact with @SpursOfficial about signing defender @cameroncv2 on a permanent basis,” Temple explained on Twitter.
“CCV’s loan spell from Spurs has expired.”
The Verdict: Time to go…
While Carter-Vickers has impressed for Bournemouth, it’s arguably unlikely he has a future in north London and now may be the right time to let him go.
The centre-back made his first team debut for Spurs in the Carabao Cup back in 2016 and has gone on to feature just three more times for the Lilywhites in all competitions since then (Transfermarkt).
Given Spurs may need to adopt a sell-to-buy policy this summer as they aim to rebuild their squad and prepare for life under a new manager, Carter-Vickers is definitely a player worth offloading for some much-needed finances.
His stock will be higher than ever after a successful season at the Vitality Stadium and chairman Daniel Levy should definitely look to cash-in.
