Tottenham are in the running to sign a number of defenders and it seems one of our young defenders will be going out on loan. Cameron Carter-Vickers, who is highly rated at Tottenham, is moving to Sheffield United until the end of the season after he signed a new contract with the club that runs until the summer of 2020. (TottenhamHotspur.com).
The player even shared an update on his current contract situation on Twitter as he signed a new deal and then made a move to the Blades.
Sheffield were promoted to the Championship this year and will be looking to stay up. The 19-year-old made four appearances for us in the domestic cups last campaign and many expected him to step up and be a part of the first-team this season due to the large number of games that the club are expected to play. However, things have worked out differently for the youngster.
Mauricio Pochettino had also stated that Carter-Vickers is one of the best young centre-backs in England and he even was called for the senior US side last November.
There are a couple of reasons why the US international could have moved to the Blades. The Championship side plays in a similar 3-4-3 system that we employ and that will help the American gel into our side better next season.
The other reason would be the arrival of Davinson Sanchez and the possible transfer of Juan Foyth as well. Carter-Vickers does need to play regular football and that will be available at Sheffield, which will help his growth, which is a requirement at the moment.
The Blades also shared a tweet which confirmed his move to the side and hopefully, things will work out for all parties involved.

Sheffield United have done pretty well since coming up with a couple of wins and a couple of defeats from their first four games and Carter-Vickers will be looking to add more quality to their defence and we hope he becomes a much improved and a better player from the experience.
Good Luck Cameron!
