Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Derby County are among a host of Championship sides believed to be interested in signing Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan, according to reports from TEAMtalk.
The 21-year-old looks set to depart the North London club for another year, with the United States of America international reportedly being made available for a loan spell away from Spurs for the fourth time of his career.
The defender spent last season on loan with Swansea City, making 33 appearances in all competitions for the Welsh club as they finished 10th in the Championship table.
The powerful centre-half has also enjoyed impressive loan spells with Sheffield United and Ipswich Town, but has made just four first-team appearances for Spurs in his career.
Now, TEAMtalk claim that Leeds, Fulham, West Brom and Derby are all believed to be interested in Carter-Vickers, with Luton, Bristol City, Middlesbrough and Barnsley also being credited with an interest.
Leeds have already lost influential defender Pontus Jansson to Brentford this summer, so it will be interesting to see whether they go in for Carter-Vickers, despite Phil Hay claiming that they won’t be looking to strengthen their defence with just one week of the window remaining.
Derby have also bolstered their defensive options this summer too, signing Krystian Bielik and Matt Clarke from Arsenal and Brighton respectively.
I think that a permanent move away from Spurs would be best for Carter-Vickers, let alone another loan move away.
He isn’t going to be getting any game-time for Mauricio Pochettino any time soon, so he might as well look to make a permanent exit.
I doubt that Leeds and Derby will be interested in signing Carter-Vickers given their reported transfer stances, however for someone like Luton, he could be a very good signing indeed.
