Cameron Carter-Vickers: Celtic ready to fight three English clubs for defender's permanent signature

Celtic are prepared to make an attractive contract offer to Cameron Carter-Vickers in a bid to persuade the defender that his long-term future belongs in Glasgow.

The American defender has been a major hit at Celtic since arriving on loan from Tottenham Hotspur at the end of last August’s transfer window.

Celtic have a purchase option with Spurs for the 24-year-old, which could rise to as much as £10million, but still need to agree personal terms with the US internationalist.

Carter-Vickers scored the winning goal for Celtic in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Rangers at Ibrox, which has moved Ange Postecoglou’s men closer to the title and guaranteed Champions League football next term.

That scenario is allowing Celtic to put together a substantial package to try and convince the centre-half to pen a permanent deal with the club.

Carter-Vickers is understood to be enjoying life at Celtic, but three English Premier League outfits – Wolves, Burnley and Leicester City – are understood to be interested in him and are weighing up whether to make offers.

Celtic manager Postecoglou has remained relaxed on Carter-Vickers’ situation and also that of winger Jota, who is on loan from Benfica. Celtic have a similar purchase agreement with the Portuguese club and are keen to sign him on a permanent deal.
