Tottenham Hotspur’s £5million valuation of Cameron Carter-Vickers could prove to be a stumbling block for Celtic, according to the Daily Record.

The USA international, who is out of contract at Tottenham at the end of the season is reported to be not keen on making a loan switch and instead wishes to leave the club on a permanent basis.

The central defender has had his fair share of loan stints in recent seasons having spent time with Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke City, Luton Town and most recently, Bournemouth.

Belgian duo Anderlecht and Club Brugge are both monitoring the 23-year-old’s situation, with Celtic having been keen on taking him to Parkhead for the upcoming campaign on a temporary basis.

Celtic still remain keen on the Spurs academy product, while there is also interest from Bournemouth, Newcastle United and Premier League newcomers Norwich City.

A source close to Carter-Vickers told the Daily Record: “Cameron needs a fresh start to kick start his career. A loan move is not something he’d be keen on.”

£5million for a player who has less than a year to run on his current contract and given his place in the squad seems slightly expensive.

Carter-Vickers is right to hold out for a permanent move, rather than another loan switch after proving at Swansea, Luton and Bournemouth he can be a regular in the Championship at the very least.
