Newcastle United are showing “serious interest” in Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers, according to reports.

The defender joined Spurs when he was just eleven years old, but he is yet to make his Premier League debut for the Londoners. He did play four times for them in 2016/17 in cup competitions, though.

Since 2017, Carter-Vickers has had six separate loan spells away from Tottenham in the Championship. He has played for the likes of Sheffield United, Swansea City and Stoke City.

Carter-Vickers spent the 2020/21 campaign with AFC Bournemouth. He featured 26 times for them across all competitions as the Cherries missed out on promotion back to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old may leave Spurs this summer according to 90min. They report that Newcastle are seriously interested in the defender.

The United States international is also attracting the interest of Celtic and several MLS sides. They add that Carter-Vickers wishes to remain in Europe to “continue his development”.

The centre-back only has 12 months remaining on his current contract with Tottenham.

Elsewhere, Kevin Phillips has been speaking on Harry Kane‘s future with Football Insider. He would be “surprised” if the forward made the move to Manchester City this summer:

“It won’t happen now, which is huge for Tottenham.

“Guardiola has already come out and said that’s too much for Man City to pay. So I’d be surprised now if Kane does end up going to Man City.

“They can afford it but he’s not going to be an asset that in four or five years you get your money back for him. So you can sort of write that money off.

“Guardiola’s has already shown that he’s not fussed about playing with an out-and-out striker.

“But Danny Ings is obviously a much cheaper option. Would he give you the goals that Harry Kane would? No, but he’s a good player and he’s shown what he can do with Southampton.

“If he was to go to Man City then he’d get more chances. He’s a goalscorer and he works his socks off. We know City like to press and he can do that.“
