Cameron Carter-Vickers has become the latest player to return to Tottenham Hotspur from a loan spell.

The news comes a day after Spurs decided to recall Jack Clarke from his loan with Leeds United, who also had an unsuccessful time at his former club having just played 19 minutes of Championship football this season (transfermarkt).

Carter-Vickers, 21, joined the Championship side back in August and had planned to spend the entire season at the bet365 Stadium.

He made fifteen appearances for Stoke in all competitions but had not been included in their Championship match day squad for their last five fixtures (transfermarkt).

A statement on the official Stoke City website claimed that it was Tottenham’s decision to cut the loan spell short.

He returns to North London somewhat down on the central defensive pecking order behind the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth.

The statement on Stoke’s website read: “Tottenham Hotspur are to recall Cameron Carter Vickers from his loan spell with Stoke City on January 2.

“The US international defender made 15 appearances for the Potters, including 14 starts, after moving to the bet365 Stadium in August.

“The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Cameron for his efforts and wish him every success for the future.”
