Confirmed: Sheffield United handed blow as player departs



Sheffield United have confirmed via the club’s official website that Cameron Carter-Vickers has returned to Tottenham Hotspur, at the midway point of his season-long loan at Bramall Lane.  

Chris Wilder’s side had secured the defender’s service on-loan during the summer, with Carter-Vickers playing a significant role for the Blades during the first-half of the season, featuring on 18 occasions across all competitions and scoring a goal on his debut for the club, in a 1-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers in September.

Spurs have now moved to recall the 20-year-old early from his spell at Bramall Lane, with Carter-Vickers’ last appearances in red and white coming in the FA Cup third-round, when he featured in defence in the victory over Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Carter-Vickers departs Bramall Lane having helped Sheffield United into promotion contention on their Championship return, with the Blades currently sitting sixth in the table following last weekend’s goalless draw in the Steel City derby with Sheffield Wednesday.

Wilder’s side currently sit ahead of Leeds United on just goal difference, but will be looking to strengthen their grip on a place in the top-six this weekend, when they travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.

The Verdict

Although Carter-Vickers was far from a regular starter at Bramall Lane, this is still a blow for Wilder and the Blades, who have lost a very capable central defender.

Carter-Vickers appeared to have settled into life at Bramall Lane well, and was part of a squad who are right in the mix for promotion.

Wilder will hope the loss of the Tottenham defender doesn’t have too much of an impact on his squad’s push for a Premier League return.
