Cameron Carter-Vickers has completed a loan move to Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed.
The Spurs defender has struggled to make a breakthrough in north London in recent years and this will be his fourth loan spell during his time at the club.
He has played for Sheffield United, Ipswich Town and Swansea City during his spell in north London.
Having joined Spurs’ academy at the age of 11 in 2009, he has spent a decade at the club but has made just four senior appearances, with every single one coming in a cup competition.
And he will now seek first-team football at Stoke as the club look to force their way back into the Premier League.
Carter-Vickers has never had much chance of making his way into the Spurs first-team.
His lack of appearances speaks to that as does Spurs’ willingness to move him out on deadline day.
Of course, he will hope to make an impact at Stoke and he actually has a great deal of Championship experience.
While he has yet to make his Premier League debut, he has 64 second-tier appearances under his belt.
This, then, is a win-win, with Spurs shifting out a player who is unlikely to play and Stoke signing an experienced centre-back.
