Report: Newcastle want to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers from Tottenham

Newcastle want to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers, with SBI Soccer reporting that the Magpies plan to make a move for the Tottenham Hotspur star if Celtic fail to make his deal permanent this summer.

Carter-Vickers’ spell at Parkhead looks set to be a game-changer for the 24-year-old. He went to the Scottish Premiership after six loans in the Championship. Some of those were much more successful than others.

He has gone on to enjoy an amazing campaign with Ange Postecoglou’s men. And he now looks set to win the league title having been a stalwart for the Hoops.

According to SBI Soccer, Celtic have the option to sign Carter-Vickers permanently for £10 million. However, should they fail to get a deal done, several teams are interested.

And SBI Soccer names Newcastle as one that has joined the race. They wanted the USMNT international last summer.

Tottenham reportedly want to sell Carter-Vickers this summer. And it seems to be a sensible stance with his stock so high after a brilliant spell at Celtic Park.

Spurs fans are probably not too concerned about being made to rue letting him go. Having said that, Tottenham would surely rather sell him to Celtic than Newcastle this summer.

Of course, if the Magpies are prepared to offer more, the situation changes. But Tottenham may be a little wary of letting him join a Premier League rival where he could potentially thrive and show that he perhaps deserved another opportunity.

It would surely be a surprise however, if Celtic did not decide to keep him anyway.
