Celtic keen to sign Tottenham Hotspur loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers permanently
The American defender joined Celtic on loan on the final day of the summer transfer window. He has been one of the prominent stars for the Hoops and is having a successful season under Postecoglou. The 23-year-old has already made 14 appearances this season in the Scottish Premiership.
Cameron has been termed as one of the best signings of the Ange Postecoglou era at Celtic Park. This season, the 23-year-old has become a crucial part of the Hoops’ defence as they look to retain the SPL title. When asked whether he would like to keep hold of the USMNT defender, the Aussie manager gave his verdict.
“Absolutely. I wouldn’t have brought him in if I thought it was just a short-term thing.”
Postecoglou also revealed they would take most of the decisions regarding the future of loan players in January.
“Part of that discussion will be around players we have on loan and seeing what decisions we want to make on them. If the players are happy here and want to stay here, we will get round to those discussions.”
“Those are all things we will discuss. The intimate details of people’s contracts or clauses – all those things need agreement from two or three parties.”
Antonio Conte’s preferred lineup consists of three central defenders in the back. But, due to Cristian Romero’s injury, the Italian manager has been forced to play left-back Ben Davies in the backline. Rookie Japhet Tanganga, meanwhile, hasn’t received many chances lately.
At the same time, Joe Rodon’s future remains uncertain. Therefore, the current scenario suggests that Spurs require a central defender signing in January.
