Pochettino To Make A Decision About Club’s First January Deal Soon – Set For Talks With Manager

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino could be forced to recall one of his loaned-out players as we are facing a major crisis in having physically fit defenders for our next set of games. The Star claims that Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder will sit down to discuss the future of Cameron Carter-Vickers, as the young American has been playing his football for the Championship side.

Pochettino revealed that a decision on the future of the 19-year-old could take place soon and he might recall the youngster. However, Carter-Vickers is on a season-long loan at the Blades and Wilder would want to keep him in the team as they look to return to the Premier League next season.

The American has made 13 league appearances for the Blades this season and has also scored one goal with two assists to his name; not bad for a central defender.

Injury Crisis Making It Tough For Spurs

Pochettino might be without Toby Alderweireld until January and that will certainly stretch our side as we look to stay in the hunt for a top-4 spot. The games would be coming in thick and fast and the thinking is that bringing in Carter-Vickers would give us more options to play at the back should we have to rest the likes of Eric Dier or even Davinson Sanchez.

Cameron Carter-Vickers

While Carter-Vickers has been playing regular football, it is not Premier League quality and that could be one reason why moving for him and bringing him back in the winter window will not solve our defensive problems.

The American would possibly spend more time on the bench than on the field and that isn’t the best option for his growth. Sticking with Sheffield and playing more games is the right way to go about it and hopefully, the youngster continues playing for the Championship side.

As for our first-team, we have to invest in the squad and bring in some cover for our central defenders. Just relying on Jan Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Sanchez was never going to work, even though we have used Eric Dier in the heart of the defence.

Every top team will be looking to invest in the winter window and we have to do the same as we look to climb back into the top-4 and also think about facing Juventus in the Champions League round of 16.
