Time really is a flat circle. It may be 2019 but Cameron Carter-Vickers may be poised for a move to a side he represented in 2018. The American center back hasn’t quite found a place in the Swansea City lineup since going out on loan in the fall. The Tottenham player may be headed back to Ipswich Town according to TWTD.

Last year was something of an uneven season for CCV as the young defender made several appearances for the US Men’s National Team, most recently in the forgettable 1-0 loss to Italy, but didn’t impress Mauricio Pochettino enough to warrant inclusion in the Spurs squad. Luckily he did prove his worth in Ipswich after his loan there last season as it now it seems that he’s also set to move on from Swansea City following 11 total appearances and 596 minutes.

While possibly getting more playing time is a positive, being bounced back to the team sitting in last in the Championship isn’t an ideal career move. Carter-Vickers’ joins another prominent American center back in England, nominally, who has had challenges as of late. Matt Miazga seems set to add to his jersey collection as his stay with Nantes will presumably come to an end.

CCV still obviously has time to polish his skills and hopefully the loan to Ipswich gives him the time and creates the environment he needs to do just that.
