Cameron Carter-Vickers has extended his deal with Tottenham Hotspur through 2021. Coming off his first season regularly playing first team football, CCV showed enough to have Tottenham at least invest in an extra year of his future.
In 2016/2017, Carter-Vickers made his debut for the London-based club in the League Cup against Gillingham. It was one of four matches that he would start that season (two in the League Cup and two in the FA Cup). He also was pretty regularly on the bench in their Premier League matches, although he has yet to make his Premier League debut.
This past summer, Carter-Vickers was loaned to Sheffield United in the English Championship. He got his first start for them against Bolton Wanderers on September 12th, when he scored the game’s only goal. He would go on to appear 17 times for Sheffield. However, he hit a rough patch of form at the end of November that would lead to decreased playing time at Sheffield. So in January, Tottenham cut his loan stint short.
They would find another landing place in the Championship quickly. They moved him to Ipswich Town for the remainder of the season. CCV played very well at the start of this loan, earning Ipswich Town’s Player of the Month honor for the month of February. CCV would go on to appear 17 times for Ipswich over the second half of the season.
With his loan now ended, CCV has his sights set on winning a first team spot this preseason at Tottenham. He had this to say regarding his loan stints and his upcoming preseason.
Whether he goes back on loan or becomes a rotation piece for Spurs, it’s a great sign that they are showing faith in the 20-year-old’s development. Look for CCV to be on the field for the United States later on this month for friendlies against Bolivia, Ireland, and France. Congratulations, CCV!
