The news was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter account on Friday morning.
Cameron Carter-Vickers has joined Ipswich Town on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Well I'm happy that his development is resuming. He has a huge potential, so hopefully he takes this switch as a positive to keep working hard for himself. ????

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder did explain why Carter-Vickers had been recalled from his club, revealing that with new signings he couldn’t guarantee him game time for the rest of the season.
He said that he didn’t think it was fair to keep him at the club and he wanted to keep a good relationship with Tottenham.
