Following the speculation linking Academy graduate Cameron Carter-Vickers will an additional loan spell to further aid his development this season, over the weekend Tottenham Hotspur confirmed that the 20-year-old US international had completed a move to Swansea City.

He heads to the Liberty Stadium on a loan spell until the end of the 2018/19 campaign and it should certainly help him continue his growth as a player given his spells with Sheffield United and Ipswich Town last term.

One thing I can take from this is having let him out, it really should end any loose speculation still doing the rounds about a potential departure for Toby Alderweireld and I would think it quashes the speculation around Juan Foyth.

It seems from the reactions on social media from Spurs fans that the vast majority are on board with this latest decision and given we split his time out last season, I wouldn’t be overly surprised if the spell goes well that we don’t try and tempt some Premier League interest in him come January and see how he goes stepping up this level.

I can’t get on board with the negative comments I saw about the move, it’s far better he continues getting game time as players don’t develop as well when they are stuck in Under 23 football and CCV is already past that stage given his Championship experience so far.

If Poch doesn’t see him challenging in the first team yet, then the aim is to get him to that position.

  • The problem I have is not with CCV getting game time, that makes perfect sense. My question is how is it aiding Foyth’s development when he’ seems to be getting no playing time at all. Surely he too should be out on loan.

    • Poch either really sees him as the back up for Cup games/rotation or I’d expect him to go as well this week.
