Football Insider broke the news in December that Carter-Vickers’ loan at Stoke was set to be terminated after he had lost his place in Michael O’Neill’s side.
It was the defender’s fourth consecutive loan at a Championship club after spells at Swansea City, Ipswich Town and Sheffield United in the previous three seasons.
Former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino used to speak highly of Carter-Vickers, but he does not figure in the plans for Jose Mourinho.
At Stoke, the versatile defender, who can play at both centre-back or right-back, started 12 league matches earlier in the campaign among 15 appearances in all competitions before losing his regular place.
Carter-Vickers has a contract at Tottenham that runs until the summer of 2021.
