The will, won’t he (sound familiar, right?) sign saga hasn’t been going on for months regarding Cameron Carter-Vickers and a possible permanent move to Celtic.
With Hoops fans desperate for CCV to sing on the dotted line, the USA defender has stood out this season for club Parkhead as they bid to reclaim the Scottish Premier League title.
But according to a report from SBI Soccer, the East End club are in ‘advanced talks’ to secure the strong signing of the defenders.
The report claims, “Celtic are in advanced talks to acquire Carter-Vickers on a permanent deal from Tottenham, a source close to the player confirmed to SBI.
“English clubs Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and Watford have all expressed an interest in the American defender, but Celtic continue to push to retain Carter-Vickers long-term.”
It would be a stunning coup for Celtic as they try to keep Carter Vickers and it looks like the lure of Champions League football could be a major factor in making the final decision for his move.
CCV has been a bit of a journeyman throughout his career, with Celtic being his seventh loan club, but it looks like he has found a home at the club.
Let’s hope that Ange Postecoglou can make it permanent.
