Some Spurs surprised to see academy graduate not being handed a squad number

0

Tottenham released their new player squad numbers for the upcoming season on Saturday and there were a few talking points from the announcement.

It was confirmed that new signing Matt Doherty would be wearing the number 2 shirt, while Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg and Joe Hart wear ‘5’ and ’14’ respectively.

However, some Spurs fans on social media have been left surprised that Cameron Carter-Vickers’ name was missing from the list altogether.

Jose Mourinho has seemingly decided not to give the centre-half a squad number despite using him extensively in Tottenham’s pre-season friendlies.

Following an impressive spell on loan at Luton in the second half of last season, the USA international gave a decent account of himself against the likes of Ipswich, Reading and Birmingham but the 22-year-old has not done enough to earn a place in the squad.

Given the kind of fixture schedule that the Lilywhites face over the next twenty days, some Spurs fans are surprised that the centre-back was not included as an additional option.

This suggests Carter-Vickers is either set to be loaned out or sold this summer. Seeing as there has been no update on a contract extension for the centre-back, I suspect that it will be a permanent transfer this time rather than another loan.
