Tottenham have accepted a bid from Bournemouth for Cameron Carter-Vickers and he has been given the green light to discuss personal terms, Football Insider has learned.
This site revealed last week the Championship outfit had made a move to sign the USA centre-back, 22, as they look to strengthen their back line.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that a deal has now progressed to the point that Carter-Vickers is on the verge of a transfer to the Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth have tabled seven-figure bid for the defender, who is surplus to requirements at the north Londoners.
Carter-Vickers is now discussing terms with the Cherries as he puts the finishing touches to a transfer.
Tottenham have been open to offers for the powerful defender in recent windows but were unable to agree a fee.
He had loan spells at Luton Town and Stoke City last season, after previous temporary spells at at Swansea City, Ipswich Town and Sheffield United.
Spurs wanted £5million for the American this time last year but have had to reduce the price in this window as his contract expires in June 2022.
As revealed by Football Insider earlier this summer, Luton Town are keen on signing Carter-Vickers permanently after his impressive loan last season.
But the Bedfordshire outfit have been priced out of a move by the greater wealth of Bournemouth.
Jason Tindall’s side have recently completed big-money sales of Callum Wilson, Nathan Ake and Aaron Ramsdale following their Premier League relegation.
Carter-Vickers is highly regarded by Championship clubs despite making only four senior Spurs appearances.
He started Luton’s last 14 matches last season as they survived after winning three of their final four games.
