Exclusive: Tottenham willing to sell international for £2.5m as price tumbles
Tottenham are willing to sell defender Cameron Carter-Vickers for around £2.5million this summer, Football Insider has learned.
The USA centre-back, 22, has entered the final year of his Spurs contract and club chiefs are ready to bid farewell on a permanent basis.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that Carter-Vickers has been told he can go if their asking price is met.
The north Londoners wanted £5m for the defender last summer and that value reduced to £4m in January.
Now, he is rated at up to £2.5m as he has made only four senior Spurs appearances and most of his professional matches have been in the English second tier.
The powerhouse has spent the last three seasons out on loan at five different English Championship teams.

As revealed by Football Insider this week, Luton Town are keen on signing Carter-Vickers permanently.
But his price and wages make a deal difficult for the cash-conscious outfit following their narrow escape from Championship relegation.
He joined in January and was a mainstay of their side, starting the last 14 matches as Nathan Jones’ team survived after winning three of their final four games.
Tottenham, would prefer to get the versatile defender, who has a contract that runs until the summer of 2021, off their wage bill with a full-time move.
Carter-Vickers joined Luton on loan after falling out of favour at Stoke City, where he had spent the first half of the season.
He had spent the previous two seasons on loan at Swansea City, Ipswich Town and Sheffield United.
