Report: Spurs could use 22-year-old as makeweight in deal to sign Joe Rodon

According to a report in The Sun (6 October, page 54), Tottenham could offer Cameron Carter-Vickers to Swansea City as part of a player plus cash deal to sign Joe Rodon.

Multiple reports (The Athletic and Football.London) have now indicated that the Swansea City centre-back is Tottenham’s main defensive target before the October 16 EFL deadline.

The Times reveal that the Wales international is also attracting interest from Premier League duo West Ham and Burnley but prefers a move to North London over either of those two clubs.

However, they claimed that the two clubs are still quite far away from agreeing on a fee for the young defender, with Swansea said to be demanding around £18m, while Spurs are only prepared to offer closer to £7m.

The Sun has suggested that Spurs could get around the difference in the two clubs’ valuations of Rodon by offering Carter-Vickers to the Welsh club as part of the deal.

The USA international spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Swansea and put in some impressive displays for the Championship side.

After a disappointing spell at Stoke during the first half of last campaign, Carter-Vickers once again proved his quality at Luton Town in the second half of the season, helping the Hatters to preserve their Championship status.

It remains to be seen whether Spurs would be willing to offer him as a part of the Rodon deal and also whether the Swans would be interested in signing him.

Spurs Web Opinion

Carter-Vickers has proven that he can be an asset for any side in the Championship and so I expect considerable interest in the American defender before October 16. Given that he only has a year left to run on his contract with Spurs, he is guaranteed to be sold. The only question is whether Swansea would be interested in talking him as Rodon’s replacement.
