Tottenham Hotspur decided to send some of their young players out on loan at the start of the season to gain first-team football experience.
Among those who departed on a temporary basis were Kaziah Sterling, Luke Amos, Jack Roles and Cameron Carter-Vickers.
While Roles has been impressing for Cambridge United having recently won the League Two goal of the month award (Cambridge News), Carter-Vickers has experienced some tough times at Stoke City.
The USA international, who typically plays as a central defender was asked to operate at right-back for their Championship match against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.
After losing the match 2-1, some Potters fans took to social media to vent their frustration at the performance of the 21-year-old.
Carter-Vickers spent last season on loan at Swansea City, having also spent spells with Ipswich Town and Sheffield United during the 2017/18 campaign.
Here’s what some fans had to say following the defeat.
Carter Vickers is an absolute donkey. Can't run, can't cross, cross defend, no passion. Just another player who doesn't give a fuck about this club whilst we pay £300 for season tickets to watch them 😡

Confidence now a major problem for Stoke
Once Carter Vickers hit an intended cross into row Z , he did not attempt another cross.
Every coach sees a defensive issue with Edwards
Batth the worst passer in the team so every opponent let him have the ball
It goes on……and on….

Whatever the @stoke city question, Ryan Woods is not the answer ! Nor is Sam Vokes, or Tom Ince, or Cameron Carter-Vickers….need I go on ? 🙄

Play Badou and Etebo in midfield. It isn't hard. Not play Carter-Vickers at right back too. Again, it ain't hard.

Carter-Vickers’ is currently somewhat way down on the central defensive pecking order at Spurs behind the likes of Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Foyth, Dier, Sanchez and Tanganga.
By the sounds of it, he is doing his chances of a permanent move no favours at all.
