Spurs defender Cameron Carter-Vickers may cut short his loan spell at Swansea City following a lack of game time, opening up the opportunity of a return on loan to Ipswich Town for the second half of the season, according to a report in the Sun on Sunday (January 13, Page 59).
Ipswich manager Paul Lambert has asked Spurs about taking the player for a second spell, after he spent eight months at Portman Road last season.
So would Carter-Vickers be a good signing for Ipswich?
“Considering Ipswich were able to poach him on loan for the second half of last season, it would make sense to get a player that knows the club well.
“He is a solid player and has found game time at Swansea not as forthcoming as he would have liked.
“And with Ipswich bottom of the league, you can imagine he would get considerably more football at Portman Road than he is currently getting at the Liberty Stadium.”
“I think so.
“Carter-Vickers has shown during past loan spells that he can do it in the Championship and that is the standard of player Lambert should be eyeing.
“We saw at the weekend just how much of an impact James Collins made, so similar signings would make sense.”
“Yeah, he’s had a spell there before and knows the club which would be a huge bonus.
“He’s proven himself to be Championship quality already and he’s got ability on the ball.
“He must be paired with knowledge and know-how, but this would be a good move for Paul Lambert’s men.”
“He’s exactly what they need.
“Carter-Vickers isn’t getting much game time at Swansea and Tottenham will surely be tempted to recall him from his loan spell.
“The centre-back could compliment James Collins well and he could be key to helping aid their fight against relegation this season.”
