The Daily Record have revealed that Celtic would have to pay £10m to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers on a permanent basis.
Carter-Vickers has had loan spells at Bournemouth, Luton, Stoke, Swansea, Ipswich and Sheffield United over the last few years, with the defender not having made a senior appearance for Spurs since 2017.
The centre-back completed a loan move to Celtic on transfer deadline day this summer, with the Scottish giants having the option to buy him permanently.
The 23-year-old has established himself as a regular in Ange Postecoglou’s starting lineup and has put in solid displays at the back.
Carter-Vickers admitted last week that he would be open to a permanent move to Celtic Park.
The Daily Record have now claimed that the Bhoys might find it difficult to complete the deal because of the defender’s rising price.
The report reveals that it was initially thought Celtic would have to pay just shy of £6m to make Carter-Vickers’ deal permanent.
However, it is explained that the price has now gone up to around £10m due to two separate add-ons in the loan agreement.
Spurs Web Opinion
It is difficult to imagine Celtic paying £10m for any defender, let alone someone relatively inexperienced like Carter-Vickers.
If the 23-year-old keeps up his current run of form, I suspect several Championship clubs will show interest in the summer, which would enable Spurs to potentially get close to around £7m or £8m for him.
