Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has called for Cameron Carter-Vickers to leave Spurs on a permanent basis amidst reports of considerable interest in the defender, both from English clubs and abroad.
Carter-Vickers spent the first half of the campaign at Stoke City but has been recalled by Spurs after falling down in the pecking order in the last few months.
A report in TEAMtalk revealed that Spurs were looking to loan him out to another club for the remainder of the season and that there had been enquiries from several clubs about the 22-year-old.
The report revealed that Fulham, Derby, Huddersfield, and Middlesbrough have all contacted Spurs over the availability of the USA international.
Football Insider reports that Spurs are willing to sell Carter-Vickers permanently for a fee of £4 million.
Mills believes that the youngster is stuck in a rut in North London and needs a fresh start in his career. Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Sometimes young players, they get a bit of a block.
“They go out on loan and a little bit and they do okay, but you can’t see a way of getting into the first team in any way, shape, or form, even if they’ve done okay.
“Sometimes you just need a complete change, and if you can get that then great.
“But the problem is that some of these young players at Premier League sides will be earning good money – more than what a Championship or League One club are willing to pay or are prepared to match – and you get this standoff.”

It is clear at this point that Carter-Vickers has no chance of making it at Spurs. He needs to move on for the sake of his career and at 22 years of age, he needs to be playing regular football. It seems unlikely however that any club will meet Spurs’ asking price before the transfer deadline and so yet another loan move is on the cards.
