The Athletic have reported that Newcastle United assistant manager, Graeme Jones, has urged the club to sign Tottenham’s Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer.
The report claims that Newcastle are interested in signing Kristoffer Ajer but are also looking for alternatives, with Carter-Vickers falling under that bracket.
It is said that Jones, who previously worked as an assistant at Bournemouth while Carter-Vickers was on loan there, has recommended the USA international to Steve Bruce.
Jones also used to manage Luton Town, where Carter-Vickers enjoyed a very successful loan spell under him during the 2019/20 season.
The American centre-back has been consistently loaned out over the past three years and has struggled for opportunities in and around the Tottenham first-team.
The Athletic add that Carter-Vickers would be tempted by a Premier League move despite mainly operating in the Championship during his loan moves, and he would also like to link up with Jones again.
Spurs Web Opinion:
I am sure that Spurs will let Carter-Vickers go this summer no matter what. Let’s hope he gets a Premier League move as he has always seemed like a good lad and a competent defender.
