The Daily Record have revealed that Cameron Carter-Vickers has agreed personal terms with Celtic, with the Scottish giants now said to be in a race against time to activate the option to buy the centre-back permanently from Tottenham. 

Carter-Vickers has enjoyed an exceptional campaign on loan at Celtic Park and has been one of the club’s most consistent performers on their way to the Scottish Premiership title.

It was reported previously that Ange Postecoglou’s side were keen on activating the £6m option to buy the defender (SBI Soccer) but the Spurs academy graduate was also said to be attracting interest from Premier League clubs (90min). 

The Daily Record have now claimed that Carter-Vickers has his heart set on a move to Parkhead and has agreed on personal terms with Celtic.

However, the report states that the Hoops are in a race against time to activate the £6m option, which could rise to £10m including add-ons.

It is explained that Celtic’s option to buy Carter-Vickers will no longer be on the table after June 15, thus opening the door for other clubs to enter the race for the USA international.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Carter-Vickers wants to join Celtic, it would be a no-brainer for the Glasgow giants to activate the option. Even if £10m might be a steep price by Celtic’s standards, the likelihood is that they can recoup a higher fee for the Spurs defender if and when he eventually moves on from Celtic Park a year or two down the line.
