The defender has been a regular in Spurs’ squad this season and made four senior appearances during the cup competitions.
However, he is yet to make a single Premier League appearance and has found it very difficult to force his way into the starting line-up.
Spurs have several talented centre-back options at their disposal, including the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier and Kevin Wimmer.
Mauricio Pochettino has shown his fondness to introducing young players, though, and academy graduate is a glowing example of that this season.
Carter-Vickers has been an unused substitute for Spurs on 17 occasions so far this campaign and is certainly pushing on the door.
