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.

The Londoners have now got their wish with the Parkhead side negotiating an eight-figure package after his successful spell at Parkhead.

Carter-Vickers made 46 appearances across all competitions in the 2021-22 season as Celtic won the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League Cup under the stewardship of Ange Postecoglou.

Despite never making a Premier League appearance for Tottenham, the defender has now racked up in excess of 170 senior games.

He is also a full United States international and has amassed nine caps since making his debut in November 2017.

Carter-Vickers will play Champions League football with Celtic during the 2022-23 campaign after his triumphant first season in Scotland.

The Hoops will enter the competition at the group stage.
