Transfer market expert Dean Jones believes Cameron Carter-Vickers is ‘very keen’ on sealing a permanent move to Celtic when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
Carter-Vickers has been extremely solid at the back for Ange Postecoglou’s side this season since completing a season-long loan move to Celtic Park last summer.
It was previously reported the Scottish giants have the option to sign the centre-back for £6m at the end of his loan spell (Glasgow World) but some sources have since claimed that the option-to-buy clause is worth more than £10m including add-ons (TEAMtalk).
Alasdair Gold said on his YouTube channel earlier this month that he would be ‘shocked’ if Celtic do not take up the option to sign the Tottenham defender permanently.
However, the 24-year-old is also thought to be attracting interest from the Premier League, with the likes of Leicester, West Ham, Wolves, Burnley and Watford said to be monitoring the USA international’s progress (TEAMtalk).
Jones has now insisted that Carter-Vickers desires to seal a permanent move to the Scottish giants in the summer.
When asked about the Spurs academy graduate’s future, the journalist told GiveMeSport: “I think that Carter-Vickers is very keen, because he feels like he can become part of the project there long-term, and I think it’s one that is realistic, to be honest.”

Carter-Vickers has demonstrated this season, as well as during his last two loan spells at Luton and Stoke, that he is good enough to play at a higher level than the Scottish top-flight.
I believe the 24-year-old could be a decent addition for a top-half Championship club or potentially even a bottom-half Premier League club.
However, he now needs to settle down at a club and get some continuity in his career. Perhaps, the USA international views a move to Celtic Park as the right stepping stone at this stage of his career.
