Newcastle join Premier League clubs in race to sign £10m Tottenham star
SBI Soccer USA Outlet Complaint Newcastle United have joined other Premier League clubs and Celtic in the race to sign Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer. He has shone for Celtic on loan this season.
After a succession of Championship loans with Bournemouth, Swansea, Stoke, Luton, Sheffield United and Ipswich – the eight-time American star Carter-Vickers tried something different last summer and went to Celtic.
It was an inspired decision. With 44 appearances this season, he is on course to win the Premiership title alongside Joe Hart – and qualify with Celtic for the Champions League group stages next season.
Celtic should be one of the favorites and given the option to make the deal permanent – SBI Football Reports that it will cost Ange Postecoglou an initial £6m and will grow to £10m with add-ons.
The report also claims that Eddie Howe’s Newcastle are interested in luring Carter-Vickers to Tyneside – while other Premier League clubs including Fulham and Southampton are also keen to sign the powerful defender.
Newcastle eye Carter-Vickers: Celtic, Toon, Tottenham – best move?
There’s no way he’ll break into Antonio Conte’s Tottenham side – that ship has sailed and with his contract just a year away from expiration, it’s time to go. Southampton or Fulham would be great moves for him.
That would see him start Premier League games for a top club – but Saints could lose James Ward-Prowse this summer and without him they could be in for a relegation tumble. Fulham will certainly be too.
The lure of playing in the spotlight at Celtic in the Champions League group stage must be an attractive proposition for Carter-Vickers – who still has plenty of time at 24 to go down south. Celtic is his best shot.
