Celtic remain in talks with Tottenham Hotspur over the potential transfer of Cameron Carter-Vickers, according to the Daily Record. The 23-year-old central defender looks set to exit Spurs this summer but the North London club will only sanction a £5m sale.
Bournemouth, Newcastle and a number of clubs from mainland Europe have been linked with a move but given Celtic are in talks for Joe Hart and Carter-Vickers, a deal can be done in the coming days. Carter-Vickers played 90 mins in the 3-1 win over MK Dons last week but is expected to depart.
Carter-Vickers has just one year on his contract remaining and Spurs are likely looking to offload the player to avoid losing him for nothing. Bournemouth had the player last year and will likely fancy their chances in securing the player whilst Newcastle has the draw of Premier League football. Although, the pathway that Celtic offers is unique. Carter-Vickers can play European football, have access to top facilities and really make his mark on football in the UK after a period of time being loaned around the English Championship.
Celtic have sold Kris Ajer for £13.5m with the deal rising up to £18m in add-ons with Carl Starfelt already secured as a replacement in a £4.2m deal. Celtic need to reinforce a couple of key positions but another central defender is required as a matter of urgency.
