Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy has admitted he is in the dark about the future of Cameron Carter-Vickers at Portman Road as he is likely to return to Tottenham from his loan in the summer.
Carter-Vickers, 20, spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Sheffield United but was recalled by Spurs in January and sent out to Suffolk to play for McCarthy’s side until the end of the campaign.
The Tottenham centre-back has played every minute of every game he has been available for while on loan at Ipswich in the Championship.
McCarthy admits that there is sure to be interest in attacker Besant Celina, but he is totally unsure about what will happen with Carter-Vickers.
“I don’t know, because there will be interest in Bersant, of course there will be,” McCarthy said, as quoted by the Green’Un24.
“Cameron Carter-Vickers, I don’t know there, and I think everyone will take them all on pre-season.”
Carter-Vickers has made seven appearances since signing for Ipswich last month and has had an instant impact in the heart of defence as McCarthy’s side have not conceded more than one goal in a game during his time on the pitch.
The one-time USA international was ever-present for Sheffield United before switching loan allegiances in January, playing 18 times in all competitions for the Yorkshire club and scoring his first professional goal on his debut for them.
