The Daily Mail have reported a list of eight names who Spurs are willing to sell this summer, unsurprisingly, Cameron Carter-Vickers’ name is on it.
He is part of Spurs’ pre-season squad, with Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth returning later due to their involvements in Copa América, where they reached third place and the quarter-final respectively.
This means that Carter-Vickers has a chance to show what he has got after spending last season on loan with Swansea City.
Though this should be considered an opportunity to put him in the shop window for any prospective buyers – rather than a way back into the club’s plans.
His time at Swansea was the 21-year-old’s third loan away and he had a solid season, but it wasn’t anything spectacular – as he made 23 starts and seven substitute appearances in the league, with Swansea finishing 10th.
He was also left out of USA’s squad for the Gold Cup, with LAFC’s Walker Zimmerman, Fulham’s Tim Ream, Chelsea’s Matt Miazga and New York Red Bulls’ Aaron Long among those to get into the side directly ahead of him.
Spurs need to sell players to make up money for the new stadium and the cost of signing Tanguy Ndombele, so players who are deemed surplus to requirements need to be shifted to prevent bigger names having to leave.
At 21, Carter-Vickers has already represented USA seven times and has some good experience in the Championship.
There is certainly a chance he will have a successful career and could possibly even get into Premier League sides eventually, but that just shouldn’t be at Spurs.
