The Daily Record have revealed that Celtic have contacted Tottenham over a potential transfer for Cameron Carter-Vickers. 

Carter-Vickers has had a series of loan spells in the Championship over the last few years, having failed to make a senior appearance for Tottenham since 2017

The centre-back impressed during his spell at Bournemouth last season under Jonathan Woodgate and Football.London have claimed that Spurs are likely to cash in on the 23-year-old this summer with just twelve months to run on his current deal. 

The Cherries have been credited with interest in landing Carter-Vickers on a permanent basis, but if The Daily Record are to be believed, Celtic have now entered the race for the Tottenham man.

The report states that there has been contact between the Scottish giants and the North Londoners regarding the USA international.

It is suggested that Carter-Vickers, who is said to be valued at £5m, is keen on making the move north to Parkhead.

However, it is alleged that Celtic could also face competition from Bournemouth and Newcastle for the defender.

The report quotes a well-placed source as saying about the centre-back: “Cameron is looking for a new challenge and a few clubs are interested. Celtic and Bournemouth are the most serious right now. 

“He’s looking to get something sorted as soon as he can with the season just around the corner.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Carter-Vickers still being on Tottenham’s books is one of many examples which illustrates the club’s failure to find buyers for our deadwood over the last years. We should have likely sold the defender two years ago when it became clear that he was not going to break into the first team. Jumping from one loan to another without clarity over his future has also likely hampered the 23-year-old’s development.
