By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Cameron Carter-Vickers has revealed his delight at making his Tottenham debut in their 5-0 League Cup hammering of Gillingham on Wednesday night.
The centre-back delivered an immensely promising display at the back alongside Kevin Wimmer as Spurs brushed aside the League One side at White Hart Lane.
Carter-Vickers took to his personal Twitter account on Thursday afternoon to urge Mauricio Pochettino to make him a regular member of the Spurs team.
The 18-year-old said the appearance on Wednesday was “hopefully [the] first of many”.

The Spurs manager had hailed Carter-Vickers as a potential great in the build-up to the EFL Cup clash and he responded with a mature display alongside the more experienced Wimmer.
Supporters were delighted that Pochettino had given the full 90 minutes to the teenager, who has made huge strides over the last 12 months and has regularly been named in matchday squads without actually been called up from the bench.
