Journalist Pete O’Rourke has revealed that Celtic are still in talks with Tottenham Hotspur over the permanent signing of Cameron Carter-Vickers.
Celtic are now on the verge of being crowned Scottish Premiership Champions and Carter-Vickers has played a key part in that, having hardly put a foot wrong defensively all season.
The centre-back was named in the Scottish Premiership’s Team of the Season on the back of his impeccable displays so far.
Celtic legend Chris Sutton even claimed recently that the Tottenham academy graduate has been the best player in Scotland this season.
Celtic boss Ange Posteocoglou has spoken in glowing terms about the 24-year-old’s contribution this season and expressed his intention to bring him to Celtic Park on a permanent basis (The Scotsman).
The Scottish giants have the option of signing the centre-back permanently for £6m and previous reports had indicated they are working to seal the deal ahead of the summer transfer window (The Daily Record).
O’Rourke has now confirmed that the Bhoys are in the process of getting the deal done and added that the Spurs defender is happy at Park Head.
The journalist told GiveMeSport: “It’s still ongoing, this one. Celtic want to get it done and I think Carter-Vickers is quite happy. He’s enjoying his time up at Celtic as well.”

One would expect this deal to get done sooner rather than later. The only way I see this falling through is if some Premier League clubs enter the picture, as some reports have suggested (90min). That might cause the centre-back to have a change of heart regarding where he wants to move.
