The last we heard from Cameron Carter-Vickers, he was recalled by Tottenham from his loan with Sheffield United. It wasn’t exactly clear what his path would be after that. Would he train with the reserves? Was Tottenham about to move him permanently? What was certain was that Mauricio Pochettino was not satisfied with the player’s development. However, after spending time back with Spurs, Carter-Vickers has been loaned out again, this time to Ipswich Town FC.

Interestingly, CCV will have a chance for significant minutes with the Tractor Boys as starting center back Tommy Smith is rumored to be on his way to the Colorado Rapids in MLS. In an article posted to the team website Carter-Vickers said,
I didn’t expect to be called back. I thought I would be at Sheffield for the season but then I got told Ipswich wanted me. It’s all happened very quickly but I know Ipswich are a big club and it’s an exciting opportunity for me. I looked at the Championship table and Ipswich are only four points off the Play-Offs so hopefully I can help the team push on and compete for the top six places. I’ve really enjoyed Championship football. It’s a demanding league and there are a lot of big clubs in the division. Ipswich are one of them and I’m thankful for the chance to come and play here.
Hopefully the move allows the 20 year-old to take his game to the next level and show Pochettino what he has to offer Spurs in the future.
