Tottenham Hotspur loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers endured a successful loan stint with Celtic FC this past season. The 24-year-old will now return to north London unless the Scottish giants can put together an offer that will keep the American defender in Glasgow permanently.
Carter-Vickers spoke with The Sun about his future and whether or not he would be open to remaining with Celtic. Nonetheless, whether it’s with the latter or elsewhere, the Spurs defender wants to find a club where it allows him to settle down.
“I have really enjoyed it at Celtic. We were good to watch and an enjoyable team to play in,” Carter-Vickers said. “I am 24 now and want to be somewhere where I can settle for a few years. Me and my agent have been talking to the club throughout the season about what’s going to happen at the end of the season.”
“But obviously, it’s not just my decision. Celtic have to come to some kind of agreement with Tottenham, so it’s not completely in my hands. I just want to be somewhere playing football. If I’m being completely honest, I think it’s time to move on permanently.”
Nonetheless, Carter-Vickers has no preference in terms of clubs but states what type of manager he wants to play for that suits his playing style. With the United States in the FIFA World Cup, the defender wants to be somewhere he can flourish to secure a spot on the American squad.
“But what will happen in the future? I’m not too sure. Will I go back? You never know,” Carter-Vickers said. “I just want to be somewhere where I enjoy my football and get on with the manager. The manager at Celtic is a top manager who wants to play out of the back and keep possession, which suits me.”
When it comes to a possible price, Celtic chiefs are having discussions over a £6-million-plus transfer, but there is Premier League interest in the 24-year-old.
