Tottenham have confirmed that centre defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has left the club on loan to join Championship side Ipswich Town until the end of the season.
The Lilywhites revealed via their official Twitter account that the young powerhouse had joined the Tractor Boys after having seen his previous loan spell at Sheffield United cancelled during the January window.
Cameron Carter-Vickers has joined Ipswich Town on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

The 20-year-old, who appeared on the substitute’s bench for Spurs’ first game of the Premier League season before leaving on loan, made 18 appearances in total for the Blades, scoring once and chipping in with two assists.
He has a total of just four outings for Tottenham’s senior side, as well as a single cap for the United States’ national team.
Football Insider verdict
Carter-Vickers’ return to Spurs from Sheffield United seemed strange, and the feeling remains having seen him leave for another Championship side just days after his return. He was never going to challenge for a first team role at Tottenham so perhaps personal reasons are behind the decision to give the youngster a change of scenery. Either way, he has got to start proving why he deserves to be considered by Mauricio Pochettino, or face fading into obscurity at the club. If the Ipswich loan does not go as well as hoped, then there may well be a permanent exit on the horizon.
