Tottenham centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers has confirmed that he would like to rejoin Ipswich on loan in the summer after a successful second-half of the season at Portman Road.
Carter-Vickers, 20, had a loan deal at Sheffield United torn up in January before he was sent to Ipswich, where he has since made 16 appearances across all competitions.
The two-times USA international has admitted that he is not entirely sure about whether he will still be at Spurs for the 2018/19 season, however he is open to the idea of a second spell with Ipswich.
“Nobody knows what is going to happen next season but if there was an option to come back here it is definitely something I would consider,” he said, as quoted by TWTD.
“I would be open to offers, but it’s not really going to be my decision, it will be up to the gaffer at Tottenham to decide what’s next for me.
Carter-Vickers is not the only Spurs centre-back who could exit the club in the summer with Toby Alderweireld widely linked with quitting the club after failing to agree a new deal.
The Independent has reported that Barcelona are plotting a bid for the Belgium international in the summer.
Football Insider verdict
Mauricio Pochettino will surely want to have a good look at Carter-Vickers over the pre-season period before deciding to let him be loaned out again. However it does seem very likely that the centre-back will be allowed to leave on a temporary basis. It would be better for him to spend an entire season somewhere rather than having his campaign cut in half between two clubs. Spurs will definitely need to reorganise their defence in the summer with Alderweireld likely to go. It will be very interesting to see who Pochettino signs to replace him, or if he triggers an extra year in his contract.
