“I can settle”- Spurs defender admits he wants permanent move after recent loan spell

Tottenham Hotspur loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers says he wants a permanent move 

While speaking in an interview as quoted by the Sun, Tottenham Hotspur loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers has revealed that he would like to ‘settle’ at one team for a few years after spending a series of loan spells in the last couple of seasons. 

After several loan spells with Championship outfits, Carter-Vickers was shipped to Celtic in 2021, which has turned out to be hugely beneficial for the player’s growth. He has flourished under manager Ange Postecoglou and helped the team secure the league title this season.

When asked about his plans for the future, the American defender suggested that he enjoyed his tenure with Celtic, but he is inclined towards a permanent move and still isn’t certain where he would end up next season. 

“I have really enjoyed it at Celtic. We were good to watch and an enjoyable team to play in. I am 24 now and want to be somewhere where I can settle for a few years.”

The 24-year-old showed interest in permanently moving to the Hoops but suggested that it would be up to the two concerned clubs to figure out a possible transfer move. 

“But obviously, it’s not just my decision. Celtic have to come to some kind of agreement with Tottenham so it’s not completely in my hands. I just want to be somewhere playing football. If I’m being completely honest, I think it’s time to move on permanently.”

Carter-Vickers signed a 5-year contract with Tottenham in 2018, which means his deal with Spurs would expire in the summer of next year. For Spurs, this summer could be the last opportunity to sell him for a decent fee- granted he doesn’t renew his deal.

Should Tottenham release Carter-Vickers? 

Antonio Conte hasn’t really had the chance to impose his signings on Tottenham’s defence. Even though he has favoured Cristian Romero and Eric Dier in the backline, he could have used another top centre-back in the three-man pairing. But due to the lack of quality in the squad, he has been forced to play Ben Davies as the third central defender.

Even though Davinson Sánchez and Joe Rodon are available, the manager hasn’t given them game time for whatever reasons he may deem fit. Now it is believed that both defenders’ future at the club is uncertain as the Italian manager is looking to rebuild his squad. 

Amid such a situation, having an in-form defender like Carter-Vickers might help the manager distribute the workload efficiently. The 24-year-old has shown potential and could rejuvenate his stature in England after a successful display with Celtic, although Conte’s feelings on the USMNT star are largely unknown right now.

However, from his comments, it’s clear that the American star wants a permanent move where he can enjoy time out in the sun rather than on the bench. There is no point in keeping a player if the manager doesn’t think he is a part of his plans.

Hence reaching an agreement with Celtic for his permanent move seems to be an advantageous decision for the club as it would help our team avoid losing him for free next summer.
