Defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is highly rated by Tottenham

Tottenham have announced that they’ve signed Cameron Carter-Vickers on a new deal that will keep him in north London until 2021.

The 20-year-old centre-back has spent the last season out on loan at Ipswich and Sheffield United where he made 34 Championship appearances.

The news of the new deal for the 6ft powerhouse was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Thursday.

Football Insider verdict:

They say that players that go out on loan under Mauricio Pochettino don’t make it back at their parent club, but it looks like Carter-Vickers could be the exception. He’s been out on loan twice, to Ipswich and to Sheffield United where had made 17 Championship appearances for each of them. Pochettino might need more cover in the centre-back position, with Toby Alderweireld possibly on the way out. Carter-Vickers is a powerhouse and he’s impressed at Ipswich this season, leaving him in-demand – with former manager Mick McCarthy saying they would try and get him back for next season. Talking in the East Anglia Daily Times he said: “I don’t know what his value is but he’s been excellent for us – really, really good. I’d love to have that conversation with Mauricio Pochettino to see what he wants to do with him.” The new contract says that he has got a future at Tottenham after Pochettino admitted to being a huge fan. Talking to ESPN in 2016 he said: “I told you that, for me, he will be one of the best centre-backs in England in the future.” It looks like he might finally get a chance to prove it next season.
