According to a report from Football.London, Cameron Carter-Vickers is expected to leave Tottenham this summer.

Carter-Vickers has not made a first-team appearance for Spurs since 2017 and has had loan spells at Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke City and Luton Town since then.

The USA international joined Bournemouth on loan last summer but did not have the best of starts to his spell at the Vitality Stadium as injuries prevented him from hitting the ground running.

However, the centre-back established himself as a first-choice under Jonathan Woodgate and enjoyed a strong second half of the season.

It was reported back in February that Tottenham would look to sell the 23-year-old this summer irrespective of how well he performed during his loan spell at the Vitality Stadium.

BBC journalist, Kris Temple claimed back in May that Bournemouth had made contact with Spurs about a permanent deal for Carter-Vickers while The Athletic suggested last week that Newcastle could make a move for the centre-back.

Irrespective of who he plays for next season, Football.London have now asserted that the Spurs academy graduate is set to end his long association with the Lilywhites this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion 

We should have sold Carter-Vickers two or three years ago. Not only would we have likely been able to get better value for him in the market but the 23-year-old’s development would also have benefited as he would have had a bit more stability in his career.
