Cameron Carter-Vickers close to joining Bournemouth
Carter-Vickers is a product of the Tottenham youth academy. The centre-back made his first-team for us debut back in 2016, but has made just four appearances for the senior team so far. The 22-year-old has had loan spells at Swansea City, Ipswich Town and Sheffield United in the past.
Carter-Vickers spent the first half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Stoke City. He then joined Luton Town for the second half of the term. The 22-year-old played an integral role as they managed to stave off the threat of relegation and retain their Championship status for another season.
While he impressed with the Championship side, the youngster is not part of the plans at Tottenham under Jose Mourinho. He had already been informed to find a new club by the North London outfit. (h/t Herts Live)
And now, it seems like Carter-Vickers has found his next club, with the report claiming that Bournemouth have agreed a ‘seven-figure sum’ for the signing of the 22-year-old.

Considering that the youngster wasn’t part of the plans under Jose, offloading him permanently, rather than farming him out on another loan stint is the right decision.
The club might not receive a huge sum as transfer for the USMNT star. But, given the extent to which finances have been impacted, every penny matters as Mourinho looks to further strengthen his squad.
