Due to injuries and lack of recruitment, Tottenham’s squad has been stretched in the second half of the season.
However, one area where Spurs have always had an embarrassment of riches is in the centre half position with Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez, all capable of putting in consistent performances while Juan Foyth, Eric Dier and Ben Davies are capable of deputising.
This is perhaps why the club have opted to send 21-year-old Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan to Championship clubs for two seasons running.
The defender, who came through the Spurs academy, spent the current season at Swansea having featured 33 times for the Welsh club.
The USA international, who had loan spells with Sheffield United and Ipswich Town last term before making the move to South Wales, has now talked about his plans for the future.
The defender said that he has thoroughly enjoyed his time with the Swans and would love to return but admitted that it was beyond his control.
Speaking to Swansea’s official website, Carter-Vickers said, “I have really enjoyed it (his time at Swansea), I’ve loved every moment to be honest.
“The boys have been great and the gaffer has been top class, he really helps players improve working under him.
“To gain this experience of a different way of playing can only help me progress.
“I feel I have learnt a lot, and I am pleased to have played so much and I would love to come back one day, although obviously there are a lot of decisions around that which would not be mine.
“But it’s something I would be open to if the opportunity were to be there in the future.”

We believe that while Carter-Vickers is clearly talented, it is unlikely that he is going to break through at Tottenham.
The emergence of Juan Foyth has ended any chance the young American had of making it into the Tottenham first team.
At this age, he needs to continue playing regularly and so if he doesn’t get another loan move this summer, he will likely want to leave on a permanent basis.
