Tottenham on-loan defender wows Sky pundit, 12 conceded in 20 league games
Tottenham Hotspur loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers is in Kris Boyd’s Scottish Premiership Team of the Season so far.
In summer, the Spurs defender joined Celtic on loan with an option to buy on transfer deadline day.
Carter-Vickers has been superb for the Hoops, clocking up 23 appearances in green and white.
Celtic reportedly have an option to buy the Tottenham 24-year-old as part of the initial summer loan agreement.
The Daily Record claim that Spurs and the Bhoys have begun talks over a permanent move.
Celtic will reportedly pay £6million plus add-ons for the Tottenham academy graduate.
Given he wasn’t getting game time at Spurs and is now a key Hoops player, it’s a deal where all parties benefit highly.
Boyd named Carter-Vickers in his end-of-year XI, highlighting his role in the watertight Celtic defence.

“Celtic have conceded the least amount of goals in the league,” wrote the Sky Sports pundit.
“And I think Carter-Vickers has been key to that.
“He’s been the one who has been the most consistent.”
In summer, Carter-Vickers was reportedly attracting interest from Norwich, Newcastle, and Bournemouth too.
However, Celtic won the race for the Tottenham ace and they’re now reaping the benefits.
And if it’s true that Carter-Vickers will cost £6million, that’s a bargain for a high-quality, young defender.
