Sources: Celtic agree £10m Cameron Carter-Vickers deal with Tottenham
Celtic could end up paying £10million to Tottenham for the signing of Cameron Carter-Vickers, Football Insider understands.
It was announced on Friday (10 June) that the Scottish giants have reached an agreement with Spurs to convert the defender’s 2021-22 loan into a permanent deal.
A Spurs source has told Football Insider that Spurs have negotiated an up-front fee of £6m that could rise by a further £4m with add-ons.
The transfer represents a significant windfall for the Premier League club, who held firm on their valuation of the USA international.
Carter-Vickers, 24, has finally departed Tottenham permanently after no fewer than seven temporary spells away from the club.
The centre-back signed a two-year contract extension last summer (2021) before heading out on loan again as Spurs aimed to rake in a significant fee for his services.
