Tottenham fans react as reports say Daniel Levy has changed Celtic price tag
Tottenham have reportedly increased their asking price to £10million for Celtic to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers – and Spurs fans have responded.
Having only played five times competitively for Tottenham at senior level, the 23-year-old defender was loaned out for a seventh time in the summer.
But instead of joining an English Championship side, eight-time USA ace Carter-Vickers moved north of the border – to Scottish giants Celtic.
Since then, he has established himself as one of the first names on the Celtic team sheet under Ange Postecoglou. He has played 17 times for the Hoops.
In that time, he has scored twice and helped the Scottish outfit keep seven clean sheets. Celtic are reportedly keen on signing him permanently.
Celtic blow: What do Tottenham fans think about CCV’s price tag?
What Daniel Levy is asking Celtic to do, is to pay a club-record fee to sign a defender that has only managed to play five times for Spurs.
Odsonne Edouard is still Celtic’s club-record signing, costing £9million to sign from PSG. Carter-Vickers would become Celtic’s most-expensive ever.
While another £4million – Celtic had expected to pay £6million – is nothing to Tottenham really, it is a whole other level to those north of the border.
But most importantly, he is not worth £10million. Negotiation must be had. Tottenham fans are even questioning Levy over Carter-Vickers’ price tag.
