Tottenham blow as defender unlikely to be available again this season
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham have been dealt a blow with up and coming defender Cameron Carter-Vickers “unlikely” to be available again this season due to injury.
The 19-year-old has not yet made his Premier League debut for Spurs, but Mauricio Pochettino has often placed him on the bench in the league as the back-up right footed centre-back.
However, his season is now looking to have reached a premature end with a knee injury he suffered while on a training camp with the USA Under-20s earlier in the month expected to have put him out for the rest of the campaign.
The official Tottenham Twitter account announced that Carter-Vickers was “unlikely” to be available again on Friday afternoon during their round of injury updates.

His United States teammate Alejandro Bedoya couldn’t believe the youngster was a footballer due to his strength and it is assumed this is what has given him a boost ahead of the others in his age group.
The teenager has already played four times for the Tottenham first team, but it is now expected that he will have to wait until next season before pulling on the shirt again.
