According to the Daily Mirror, Sheffield Wednesday are interested in taking Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers on a season-long loan, but the Owls will have to beat Swansea and Ipswich to his signature.
Wednesday currently sit 21st in the Championship after securing just one point from their first three matches as they drew 1-1 with Hull at Hillsborough.
During the summer, Jos Luhukay’s side were subject to a transfer embargo from the EFL after failing to adhere to Finacial Fair Play regulations. The club announced that the embargo had been lifted last Friday, but with the transfer window in England closed, the Owls will only be able to sign players on a temporary basis.
Luhukay has yet to add to his side but with their poor start to the season he may need to make additions in the next few weeks to avoid dropping down to the third tier of English football at the end of the season.

Carter-Vickers would be the perfect start in the market for the Owls. The 20-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at their fierce city rivals Sheffield United before moving on another short loan deal to Ipswich.
In total last season, the centre-back made 34 Championship appearances and heads into this season as a far more experienced player. He has also made four appearances for the United States national side after making his debut in November last year.
Despite being young, Carter-Vickers is a well built defender and he would add some much-needed quality to a defence that has conceded six times in three league games, and his arrival could be the catalyst for the Yorkshire club to turn their season around.
