Celtic: Journalist drops Cameron Carter-Vickers transfer detail

Celtic and Ange Postecoglou showed during the previous summer transfer window how efficient they can be in terms of moving players in and out of the club, securing loan and permanent deals for the ones that joined.

Now that the Hoops have taken the SPFL title away from their Glasgow rivals, their focus can now turn to the next summer window as they look to replicate and potentially improve on the success they had this time around.

With that in mind, it seems as though a big behind the scenes detail has emerged regarding one potential transfer that could take place at the Parkhead club.

What’s the news?

According to journalist Larry Henry Jr on Twitter, Celtic have a deadline of June 15 to secure a permanent transfer deal for Cameron Carter-Vickers, which they have reportedly been looking to secure.

He also added that Everton, Fulham and AFC Bournemouth “are in the race” to sign the defender from his senior club Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

In full, Henry said: “Everton and Fulham are in the race for Cameron Carter-Vickers, should Celtic not agree to a transfer with Tottenham prior to June 12, a source close to the player confirmed. CCV heading to June USMNT camp and coming off two trophy haul with Celtic this season.”

It was later revealed that the player has agreed personal terms on a move but a transfer is certainly not a done deal and he could still have his head turned by the jaws of England’s top-flight. This is certainly a story to keep tabs on.

Postecoglou must act

To put it simply, however, Ange Postecoglou and the club’s hierarchy must act quickly to get things done.

Since arriving at Celtic Park last summer from Spurs on loan, the American has been a crucial figure for the Bhoys, making 42 appearances across all competitions.

With 30 SPFL appearances to his name, the defender earned himself an overall performance rating of 7.33/10 from WhoScored, making him the fourth-highest rated player in Postecoglou’s squad.

In terms of his defensive output, the 24-year-old ended the 2021/22 campaign with the joint-highest number of interceptions (38) from a Celtic player in the SPFL.

This shows just how important he was in Celtic’s title-winning season and why they ended the campaign with fewer goals conceded than any other side in the division.

This latest update could be a worrying one for Celtic and their supporters given the knowledge that other clubs that will be playing in the Premier League next season are sniffing around a potential move for the Bhoys loan star.

Now that the Scottish champions have an apparent deadline to seal a permanent deal for Carter-Vickers, it would be in everyone’s best interest to secure his signature as soon as possible so they can put the issue to bed and move on to furter transfer targets.

However, it could also be a worry if the prospect of playing regularly in the Premier League would be enough to see the Spurs player turn down a permanent move to Parkhead.
