Tottenham Hotspur are set to approve a loan exit for Cameron Carter-Vickers to Swansea City until the end of the season, The Sun reports.
After failing to push his way into the first-team during pre-season, Mauricio Pochettino is set to send Cameron Carter-Vickers away from North London on loan for the 2018-19 season and Swansea City are the leading suitors.
United States international Carter-Vickers spent time with Sheffield United and Ipswich Town last season, earning a combined total of 34 appearances in the Championship, and intended to prove his worth to the club after signing a new contract until May.
However, Spurs have decided to allow the 20-year-old to move away from the club on a temporary basis once again, The Sun states, and he will provide a huge boost to Swansea following their defensive woes at the start of the season.
Carter-Vickers could be an immediate starter for the Welsh side after Graham Potter lost the services of Alfie Mawson and Federico Fernandez during the transfer window, leaving the Swans extremely short of options at the back.
With Tottenham having a plethora of defensive suitors to choose from, sending Carter-Vickers on loan to a side where he is sure to earn plenty of first-team experience is the perfect move for the 20-year-old to prove his worth.

A new deal signed in May, which lasts until 2021, shows that Tottenham still have faith in the four-cap United States international and he could get his chance in the first-team further down the line – especially with Toby Alderweireld’s future remaining unclear.
Swansea will provide the defender with a chance to prove himself to the Lilywhites and Mauricio Pochettino, with Carter-Vickers potentially becoming a crucial part of the club’s push for an immediate return to the Premier League.
