Report: Amiens make loan bid for Spurs defender Cameron Carter-Vickers
Spurs have received a loan bid for Cameron Carter-Vickers from French club Amiens that includes an option to buy, according to Sky Sports’ live transfer blog (31/8; 18:01).
Carter-Vickers has been one of the Tottenham players linked with a potential move away in the final hours of the window.
Celtic reportedly made an enquiry about taking the 23-year-old on loan. However, it was suggested that Spurs would prefer a permanent deal for the USMNT international.
Amiens have now made their move for the youngster. According to Sky, the Ligue 2 side have made a loan bid that includes an option to buy.
The option however, is just £1.7 million. And Sky suggests that Tottenham are unlikely to accept such an offer for the defender.
The report does note however, that Carter-Vickers could still leave North London before the deadline passes.
Loan makes little sense for Spurs as Amiens make Carter-Vickers bid
As things stand, Carter-Vickers is set to be out of contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next summer. So a loan may not make a lot of sense for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.
They could potentially extend his terms by another year. But a potential £1.7 million fee would probably not make agreeing a new deal worthwhile.
And if Amiens decided against taking up the option, a loan spell in France’s second tier may not do a lot for his stock as they look to attract offers next summer.
A permanent move could really work out well for all parties if a club comes forward with a decent bid. But time is clearly running out.
