Tottenham Hotspur are said to be confident of securing the departure of Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer, according to Football Insider.

The report claims that despite Spurs having doubled his asking price to £5million, he is expected to depart the North London club following a twelve-year spell having joined as an 11-year-old.

Carter-Vickers is in the last year of his contract at Tottenham and was available for £2.5million during the January transfer window, but could now go for double that amount with both Newcastle United and Celtic credited with interest in the USA international.

The 23-year-old spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and found first-team opportunities hard to come by under Jason Tindall, but following his sacking and the arrival of Jonathan Woodgate, he came back into favour and made 21 appearances in the Championship, scoring one goal (transfermarkt).

Newcastle are said to be at the front of the queue to land the central defender, who has previously had loan stints at Swansea City, Ipswich Town, Sheffield United, Stoke City and Luton Town.

It makes perfect sense to cash in on Carter-Vickers and generate some much-needed transfer funds for new targets.  It is also in the player’s best interest to head out on a permanent transfer and look to kick-start his career after numerous stints out on loan.
