Report: Swansea close to loan for Tottenham’s Carter-Vickers

Swansea have two senior CBs, so this would make a lot of sense.

It sure looks as though Cameron Carter-Vickers is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur for another season-long stint in the English Championship this season. He’s been linked with a number of clubs as the loan window comes close to closing, but according to at least one report it’s looking like his most likely destination is to Swansea City.

Wales Online is reporting that Cam is close to a move to Wales that would see him revise his mostly successful stint in England’s second division for the 2nd straight season. Last year, he spent the first half of the season on loan with Sheffield United, and then moved to Ipswich Town under Mick McCarthy where he was a regular starter. McCarthy even openly declared his interest in signing the USA international permanently before McCarthy left the club.

This move would make a lot of sense of CCV — Swansea were relegated from the Premier League last season and were picked apart, and the Swans only have two senior CBs on their roster. They’re pretty desperate for defensive reinforcements, and it looks likely that Cam could get some serious minutes this season, and could be a regular starter. His ability to crack the first team at Tottenham was probably contingent on Toby Alderweireld leaving, and welp. He’s only 20 and still has a high ceiling, so this would be a good move.

Carter-Vickers has been linked with a return to Ipswich as well, and apparently was being considered by at least one MLS franchise as well. Obviously we wait for the official report, but this seems to be the most likely scenario at the moment.
