Cameron Carter-Vickers

Sky Sports claim that Sheffied are close to signing the Premier League centre-back on loan as he goes searching for regular first-team experience.[spacer height=”20px”]

It is believed that the north London club are willing to let him leave the club on a short-term basis to help his development and he is close to completing a move to the Championship.[spacer height=”20px”]

However, The Peacocks should prepare a late swoop to try disrupt the deal and bring the USA Under-20 internationalto Elland Road.[spacer height=”20px”]

The Whites are still in need of another centre-back to strengthen their squad beforoe the end of the window and highly-rated talent Carter-Vickers would be an ideal signing this summer.[spacer height=”20px”]

Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper and Matthew Pennington are the only known centre-backs in the squad, while the likes of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Conor Shaughnessy can act as emergency cover.[spacer height=”20px”]

Thomas Christiansen should look to have four main options in the key position as he will need a big squad to help achieve ambitions of promotion.[spacer height=”20px”]

Spurs ace Carter-Vickers is recognised as a big talent in North London and it may come as a surprise to some that Mauricio Pochettino is willing to let him leave on loan.[spacer height=”20px”]

Leeds should be able to persuade the defender to choose them over Sheffield United, with the latter only promoted from League One last season.[spacer height=”20px”]

Carter-Vickers is a modern day centre-back that is strong in possession and that would help him fit in quickly at Elland Road.[spacer height=”20px”]

He is also very commanding in the air and should be able to thrive off the physical battles in the Championship.[spacer height=”20px”]

The defender is yet to experience senior football in a regular basis and there would be a slight element of risk for Leeds, but he is being tipped for great things and the Yorkshire giants should try and get him while they still can.[spacer height=”20px”]
