Celtic are on the verge of securing the SPFL title this season for the first time under Ange Postecoglou’s reign in charge of the club.
With 86 points on the board from 35 league games, the Hoops have scored 81 goals and conceded just 20.
Looking ahead to the upcoming summer transfer window, it seems as though a big clue has appeared regarding one potential deal that could take place at Lennoxtown that would surely have the Celtic boss jumping for joy.
Speaking to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur insider John Wenham had this to say about the possibility of Celtic securing a permanent transfer deal for their on-loan defender Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer.
He said: “It seems like Carter-Vickers is going to go early doors. Quite where that is yet, I’m not sure. Some new names have been mentioned in the last few days.
“If I’m being totally honest, I think Celtic will speak to Tottenham and say they will pay the money on 1 July. If they just say, ‘let’s get it done early and here is £6m that goes up to £10m with add-ons’, Tottenham would take that all day.
“I know from speaking to people who know his agency, we would have taken £2.5m last summer. So, to get a much-improved fee would be something Tottenham wouldn’t think twice about. The deal is done quickly and no one has to worry about it again.”
Celtic signed the defender from the north London club on loan until the end of the season back in the previous summer transfer window.
Since then, the American has become a pivotal figure for the Hoops, making 42 appearances across all competitions.
With 30 SPFL appearances under his belt, the Spurs loanee has earned himself an overall performance rating of 7.33/10 from WhoScored, making him the fourth-highest rated player in Postecoglou’s squad.
From a defensive point of view, the 24-year-old has the joint-highest number of interceptions (38) from a Celtic player in the SPFL, highlighting just how crucial he’s been at the back.
This all shows just how much of a great move it was from the Bhoys to bring the centre-back to Parkhead last summer.
Moving forward, if what Wenham claims ends up being true, this would definitely be great news for Postecoglou and his chances of being successful with the Parkhead club moving forward.
