Newcastle United wanted to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Cameron Carter-Vickers before Celtic switch

According to Alasdair Gold (h/t Chronicle Live), Newcastle initially wanted to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers ahead of Celtic. Apparently, this was due to Graeme Jones being there at Newcastle who had worked with the player on two separate occasions. However, the defender eventually sealed a loan to Scottish giants Celtic.

Cameron Carter-Vickers is a curious case at Spurs. An academy graduate of the club, the USA international broke into the side with high hopes but failed to produce anything of note. He actually made his debut way back in 2016 as a teenager which means that it feels like he has been around for a while.

The defender is still just 23 but has been out on loan at six different clubs such as Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke City, Luton Town and Bournemouth in the last five years. Despite getting a surprise start for Spurs this season, it was clear that he might be heading out again.

Celtic eventually got their man on loan but there was a good level of interest from Newcastle as well. Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold explained why Newcastle wanted to get the 23-year-old Carter-Vickers.

“I know Newcastle were interested. They had a real think about bringing him in this window as well because I think it’s Graeme Jones who is at Newcastle, was also at Bournemouth and also (at Luton). I think he had him at both clubs and he was telling Newcastle, look, I think he could do a job but it didn’t happen in the end.”

This will be the defender’s seventh loan spell at Spurs but fans would have probably preferred for him to move to Newcastle, considering he would have garnered significant experience in England’s top flight. Carter-Vickers will now spend the season at Celtic Park for the season and then return at the end of it.
