“Wait, what???????” Why recall him?” Tottenham fans baffled by club’s January deal for defender

Cameron Carter-Vickers has secured a new loan move just four days after being recalled from his previous loan-deal. The 20-year-old centre-back has now joined Ipswich Town on loan for the rest of the season, confirmed by our club’s official Twitter account.

He was recently recalled from a loan at Championship side Sheffield United despite making 17 league starts under Chris Wilder. The defender’s final match for the side ironically came up against the Tractor Boys in the FA Cup third round clash earlier in the month.

Carter-Vickers – a USA youth international – is a product of the Spurs academy and one that boss Mauricio Pochettino has been keen to develop.

Although the defender did not expect any movement in January, he’s now targeting a playoff spot with Ipswich Town.

“I didn’t expect to be called back. I thought I would be at Sheffield for the season but then I got told Ipswich wanted me,” the 20-year-old was quoted by Sky Sports.

“It’s all happened very quickly but I know Ipswich are a big club and it’s an exciting opportunity for me. I looked at the Championship table and Ipswich are only four points off the play-offs so hopefully I can help the team push on and compete for the top six places.

“I’ve really enjoyed Championship football. It’s a demanding league and there are a lot of big clubs in the division. Ipswich are one of them and I’m thankful for the chance to come and play here.”

Tottenham fans took to Twitter to react to Carter-Vickers’ second temporary exit of the season, with many expressing their surprise at his exit after being recalled. Here we bring you the best of tweets.
