Cameron Carter-Vickers is headed back to the EFL Championship. This time, it will be with Stoke City, who secured the 21-year-old American centerback on loan for the 2019-2020 season from Tottenham Hotspur.
Carter-Vickers goes back out on loan once again after stints at Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, and Swansea City the past 2 seasons. Last season for Swansea, he had 33 appearances and had some great performances. In total, he’s made 64 appearances in the EFL Championship, and with Tottenham he has 2 League Cup and 2 FA Cup appearances. Stoke is hoping he can bring that experience to improve a lineup that finished 16th in the Championship last season.
CCV has featured 8 times for the United States Men’s National Team since November 2017, but only once under current head coach Gregg Berhalter in 2019. That was a substitute appearance in a 1-0 loss to Jamaica on June 5th. He also captained the U-23s in friendlies against Egypt and the Netherlands in March. The centerback is hoping to improve his stock to become one of the go-to defenders on the USMNT under Berhalter, and he will look to become a mainstay in the Stoke lineup and earn more caps with the USMNT.
Is CCV moving to Stoke a good move?
