Ekrem Konnur has revealed that Celtic have now opened talks with Tottenham Hotspur regarding a permanent deal for Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Carter-Vickers has been a revelation since heading to Celtic on loan in the summer transfer window. The centre-back has become a mainstay in Ange Postecoglou’s back four and is continuing to deliver solid displays.

The 23-year-old, who played a valued part in the Scottish giants’ League Cup win earlier this month, has admitted that he would be open to staying at Celtic Park beyond the end of his loan spell.

Some reports have suggested that the Bhoys would have to pay £10m to sign the Spurs academy graduate on a permanent basis. 

Postecoglou revealed a few days ago that he does wish to keep Carter-Vickers at the club  over the long term but admitted the decision might come down to the defender himself.

Konur has revealed that Celtic are already working to secure the centre-back on a permanent basis on the back of his impressive start to life in Scotland.

The journalist added that the Tottenham man is happy at Parkhead and wants to remain at the club.

This deal would be a good move for all parties involved. Carter-Vickers is a talented defender but it is clear that he is not quite at the required level for Spurs.

At 23 years of age, he needs to settle down after a series of loan moves over the last few years. In Celtic, he seems to have found a club where he is thriving.
