Cameron Carter-Vickers is the first exit from Tottenham Hotspur this summer as the 24-year-old will remain with Celtic FC after the Scottish giants reached an agreement with the north London club.
After spending an entire season on loan with the Glasgow side, Football Insider reports the fee that Celtic paid to hold onto the American defender could reach up to £10-million.
The Scottish Premier League champions will pay £6-million up front, with the other £4-million being add-ons. Carter-Vickers is the first of many players that Tottenham hopes to offload this summer to offset some purchases.
In 45 appearances for Celtic this past season, Carter-Vickers scored four goals and recorded one assist while solidifying himself as a starter on their backline, which explains their decision to make the defender’s stay a permanent one.
Along with Carter-Vickers, Spurs are hopeful to see players like Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks, and possibly Bryan Gil exit on favorable fees for the north London club.
The man behind the curtain, the Jedi, this just a no brainer. The sooner we sell these promises and get real players in. The academy only need to find about 2 to 3 players that maybe make it. We squeeze the lights out of our youngsters and they cannot even get a whiff from Championship teams. Parrot is not even in Conte’s plan and we need a striker. Let him go and go now. The Marcus Edwards fiasco should teach us lessons. Carter should have been sold the minute Dier went back to defense.
CCV was never really given a chance at Spurs. If not for Poch, Harry would be playing in Scotland too now.
CCV’s £6m won’t even cover Year 1 wages for Perisic….when you add in all the stuff the club has to pay the Govt etc.
With two free signings coming in I see Levy is still operating at a profit so far!
One down, only fourteen more to go…
