Nuno Espirito Santo has revealed that Cameron Carter-Vickers is recovering well from the injury he picked up in the first leg against Pacos De Ferriera last week.

Carter-Vickers’ start in the Europa Conference League playoff last week was the first competitive appearance the defender has made for Tottenham since 2017

The centre-back, who has had a series of loan spells in the Championship over the last few years, impressed during his time at Bournemouth last season.

Carters-Vickers was linked with a permanent move to the Cherries as well as a move to Celtic earlier in the summer but neither materialised. 

Reports then emerged earlier this week that Fulham had also expressed an interest in singing the USA international, who is allegedly valued by Spurs at £5m.

Nuno has now revealed that the 22-year-old is back training outside after picking up an ankle injury in the 1-0 loss against Pacos de Ferreira last week.

When asked if Carter-Vickers’ injury could scupper a potential transfer in the final few days of the transfer window, the Spurs boss said (via Alasdair Gold): “No, he’s much better. He ran outside and yesterday was already on the pitch so he’s improving a lot and this is the only thing that concerns me, that the player is fit and healthy.”

This is great news for both Spurs and Carter-Vickers. I would expect a deal to be struck for the 22-year-old before the window closes as plenty of Championship clubs would likely be queuing up to snap him up on the back of his showing at Bournemouth last campaign.
