'The best loan signing ever?': Celtic reportedly in talks with international, adored at two English clubs

Celtic have reportedly made contact with Spurs over Cameron Carter-Vickers.

New Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou has apparently identified central defence, right-back and wingers as priority positions.

The Daily Record reports that Carter-Vickers is set to leave Tottenham this summer, and that Celtic have made contact over his signature.

However, the Bhoys are apparently in competition with Bournemouth, where he spent last season on loan.

Carter-Vickers has come through the ranks at Spurs but to date has only made four senior appearances since his 2016 debut.

The 23-year-old – capped eight times by the USA – has taken in six loan stints over the past few years, and he was superb in his last two.

“Unhealthy obsession with Cameron Carter-Vickers”

Carter-Vickers joined Luton in January 2020 and made 16 Championship appearances, including the full 90 minutes in their last 14 matches of the season.

His performances not only helped shore up a previously rickety Hatters defence but also proved crucial in the club pulling off a great escape and surviving in the Championship.

Luton were 10 points from safety in February but managed to see off Blackburn 3-2 on the final day to finish three points clear of the drop zone, with Carter-Vickers once again impressing.

Here is what some of their fans were saying about Carter-Vickers during his time at the club:

“Move heaven and earth to get his name on a contract”

Carter-Vickers then joined Bournemouth on loan in October and, though he didn’t play until January, he was superb once at full speed.

He made 23 Championship appearances, including both of the playoff semi-final legs.

Although they fell short in pursuit of an immediate Premier League return, many fans are eager for Carter-Vickers to join once again.
