Expert rates chances of Celtic signing Cameron Carter-Vickers after 'speaking to people who know'

Celtic will complete a deal for Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer despite new Premier League interest.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

American news outlet SBI Soccer (23 April) claim Celtic are in advanced talks to sign the 24-year-old after his successful loan spell.

However, on 29 April, 90min reported Southampton and Fulham are also interested in signing the defender.

Wenham claims the Hoops will get a deal over the line if an offer is made as soon as the summer transfer window opens.

“It seems like Carter-Vickers is going to go early doors,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Quite where that is yet, I’m not sure. Some new names have been mentioned in the last few days.

“If I’m being totally honest I think Celtic will speak to Tottenham and say they will pay the money on 1 July.

“If hey just say, ‘let’s get it done early and here is £6million that goes up to £10million with add-ons’, Tottenham would take that all day.

“I know from speaking to people who know his agency, we would have taken £2.5million last summer.

“So to get a much-improved fee would be something Tottenham wouldn’t think twice about.

“The deal is done quickly and no one has to worry about it again.”

Carter-Vickers has made 42 appearances for Celtic this season.

He has already won the Scottish League Cup and is likely to win the Premiership title.
