Nearly a month after Cameron Carter-Vickers was transferred from Tottenham Hotspur to Celtic, the American has spoken out about the decision.

Carter-Vickers was frequently loaned away, but it was his time at Celtic that grabbed everyone’s attention. It is hardly surprising that the Hoops chose to sign the American to a permanent contract after his outstanding play for them last season.
The defender has since spoken up regarding his departure, and he has said that he was aware that Tottenham didn’t want to keep him long before the end of the previous campaign.
According to The Daily Record, the American stated: “I was associated with a few Premier League clubs, but nothing substantial ever materialised since I was always sure that I wanted to join with Celtic from the conclusion of last season. I intended to do that.
“I was thrilled since it didn’t happen right away but it was still completed soon. It was crucial for me to depart from Tottenham at last.

There is no denying Carter-Vickers’ skill as a center-back.
After more than 10 years on Tottenham’s books, it’s unfortunate that things didn’t work out for him there, but Spurs are also not much to blame because they’ve nearly always had superior centre backs.
Currently available to Antonio Conte are Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, Ben Davies, Japhet Tanganga, Joe Rodon, and Davinson Sanchez. Carter-Vickers had little chance of succeeding at Tottenham since every single one of them was ahead of him.
It was best for everyone involved to relocate, and with Celtic, Carter-Vickers has found a place he can call home.
