Sky Sports have revealed Tottenham Hotspur have made it clear to Celtic that they have no intention of lowering their asking price for Cameron Carter-Vickers. 

Carter-Vickers has been a big hit at Celtic since joining the Scottish giants on loan in the summer.

The 23-year-old has quickly established himself as a mainstay in Ange Postecoglou’s backline and the Celtic boss has expressed his intention to keep the centre-back at the club beyond the end of this season.

The Spurs academy graduate has also admitted that he would like to stay at Parkhead beyond the end of his loan spell.

Celtic have the option of buying Carter-Vickers permanently but is unclear what fee the club would have to pay, with some sources putting the value at £6m while others claim it is closer to £10m.

Sky Sports have now said that Celtic do, in fact, just have to pay just £6m to sign the defender.

The report claims that the Scottish club are now in discussions with Spurs around the structure of any potential permanent deal.

It is explained that Tottenham have not given the Bhoys any wriggle-room on the defender’s price. 

Spurs Web Opinion

I am not surprised that Spurs are not giving Celtic any wriggle-roam regarding the price or in terms of the structure of the payment. Tottenham would arguably be able to get more than £6m for the centre-back from Championship clubs given how well he has performed this season.
