Tottenham ace Cameron Carter-Vickers set for Bournemouth switch amid Celtic interest

According to the Daily Record, Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, who has been linked with a move to Scottish giants Celtic, is set to join Bournemouth.

Carter-Vickers is a product of the Tottenham Hotspur youth academy. The centre-back made his senior debut for the club way back in 2016 but has featured just four times for so far. Instead, the 23-year-old has had loan spells away at Swansea City, Ipswich Town, Sheffield United, Stoke City and Luton Town in the past.

Carter-Vickers signed for Bournemouth on a season-long loan deal in the summer last year. And he enjoyed a decent campaign as the Cherries finished in the playoff places but couldn’t make it to the playoff finals. The centre-back featured in 26 games across all competitions, scoring one goal and setting up another. (h/t Transfermarkt)

With Carter-Vickers’ loan spell now over, he is back at Tottenham. While his contract with the north London giants was supposed to expire at the end of the 2020/21 season, the club triggered a one-year extension option in order to protect his value. (h/t Football.london)

However, the 23-year-old USMNT international has no part in new manager Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans at Tottenham and is widely expected to leave before the transfer window closes. Scottish bigwigs Celtic were keen on signing the centre-back, but it seems like he could set for a return to the south coast again, as Bournemouth are touted as his next destination.

Having had a stop-start career going out on loan year after year, finding a permanent place would be beneficial for Carter-Vickers’ career growth. And Bournemouth is a club that he knows well and has done well at over the past year, making the move a sensible one for all parties involved.
