Tottenham Hotspur reportedly took up an option to extend Cameron Carter-Vickers’ contract by a year before he left Spurs on loan, according to Football London.
The Tottenham academy graduate will spend the 2020-21 season with Championship side Bournemouth, hoping to help them back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Carter-Vickers came through the Spurs setup and made his first-team debut in 2016, going on to feature play three more times in the FA Cup and League Cup for the North Londoners.
The 22-year-old has embarked on his sixth loan spell away from Tottenham, who have an option to recall him in January.
He has previously played in the Championship for Sheffield United, Ipswich, Swansea, Stoke and Luton, earning rave reviews with the latter club as he helped them survive in the second tier.
“Cam’s a great lad and a fantastic player to play with,” club captain Sonny Bradley told Luton Today in July.
“He just knows what he’s doing, plenty of talking and I feel comfortable next to him.
“Cam’s been excellent… he’s come in, another player with a great attitude, a big future and right now we’re lucky to have him.”
This means the eight-cap United States international will still have a year remaining were he to return to Tottenham next summer, meaning they won’t be losing him for nothing.
Prior to this summer, Carter-Vickers didn’t look like being in contention for the Tottenham first team and, with his contract expiring next year, his time at Spurs looked to be running out.
However, Jose Mourinho gave the centre-back game time in pre-season, and hearing he’s now got a longer contract is good news.
Whether it’s purely to ensure Tottenham can get a fee for him next season or potentially give him one more chance in the first team, should he do really well with the Cherries, remains to be seen.
