While one central defender in Joe Rodon came in through the door at Tottenham on deadline day, another one in Cameron Carter-Vickers sealed his move away from the club.

Tottenham Hotspur confirmed that Carter-Vickers had joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan deal.

The USA international has had spells in the Championship at Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke City and Luton Town over the last three seasons, with varying degrees of success.

Bournemouth are the sixth different club that the 22-year-old will be representing in the second tier as he will look to aid the Cherries’ bid to bounce straight back up after their relegation last season.

There was some confusion over why Spurs loaned Carter-Vickers out since his contract with the club was due to run out at the end of the season.

However, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has confirmed that the defender signed a one-year extension before sealing a move to the Vitality Stadium, which means that he will still have a year left to run on his deal when he returns to Spurs next summer.


Spurs Web Opinion

I was expecting Cameron Carter-Vickers to be sold permanently this summer and I expected Championship clubs to queue up for him given how well he played at Luton in the second half of last season. However, with the financial impact on COVID-19, very few clubs were likely in a position to take a gamble on him. This is probably why Spurs have decided to send him on another loan, with the hope that there would be more interest in him next summer.
