Cameron Carter-Vickers is reported to be wanted by Luton Town on a permanent basis or a second loan spell, according to Football Insider.

The USA international began the season at Stoke City and struggled for game time when Michael O’Neill arrived as the Potters new manager and returned to north London early after he had failed to make the matchday squad in seven Championship games in a row (transfermarkt).

The 22-year-old moved to Championship strugglers Luton in January and impressed at the heart of the Hatters defence and helped them to avoid the drop to League One.

The report claims that Daniel Levy has given the defender his blessing to leave North London on a permanent basis as a result of not being in Jose Mourinho’s future plans.

The academy graduate is out of contract next summer with Levy preferring to remove him from the wage bill ahead of the upcoming campaign with the club’s £4million valuation in January likely to have taken a hit in the wake of the financial crisis.

Carter-Vickers failed to break into the first team plans under Mauricio Pochettino and now finds himself behind the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga and Juan Foyth in the pecking order.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I think it’s about time levy went after dismissing Pochettino and putting Mourinho in charge. Did we qualify for the Champions league no. Did Vertonghen stay no. Did Eriksen leave yes. Did Carter Vickers a promising defender now he’s being allowed to. I’m embarrassed to say I’d rather support Arsenal, Cheshunt or Ware than keep being disappointed by Spurs year after year. Millions of £:s wasted and no trophies to show for it. At least Pochettino qualified for 4 successive seasons champions league football. The only decent result was beating Arsenal. Poor results failing to beat Norwich and getting beat by the worst team in the Premier league
