Report: Tottenham want to sell Carter-Vickers after injury recovery
Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sell Cameron Carter-Vickers after his recovery from an ankle injury, according to football.london.
What’s the story?
The publication says the Englishman has made a full recovery from the problem picked up in the Europa Conference League.
Carter-Vickers went off injured during the 1-0 loss away to Pacos de Ferreira.
He has been the subject of transfer speculation all summer long, attracting links with Celtic and Newcastle.
However, those have died down in recent weeks with the central defender facing a race to find a new club.
Spurs could have a centre-back crisis upon return from the September international break.
Current rules mean Cristiano Romero and Davinson Sanchez will need to quarantine before they can return to action in England.
With Toby Alderweireld and Juan Foyth having departed, it leaves just Eric Dier, Joe Rodon, Romero and Sanchez as Tottenham’s options.
An injury to either the England international or the former Swansea man could spell trouble.
Jonathan Woodgate once labelled him ‘very good’.
Tottenham need to keep Carter-Vickers
It may be tempting to clear the decks as Spurs undergo a complete overhaul this summer.
And one of those players under-threat is Carter-Vickers.
At 23, it seems the United States international has no future at the club. His failure to make the step up to the senior squad has been noticeable.
But after his recovery from injury, Tottenham should look to keep Carter-Vickers.
The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to wreak havoc yet again, meaning Spurs could be short at the back.
With no central defenders likely between now and the 11pm deadline, retaining Carter-Vickers would be smart.
