Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers could be sent on loan to Swansea City for the rest of the season.
The 20-year-old America international will not be in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s squad and the club are happy to let him move to Wales to be part of Graham Potter’s Championship side.
The Swans are in desperate need of new defenders having sold Alfie Mawson to Fulham and Federico Fernandez to Newcastle in the window.
Carter-Vickers, who came through the youth academy at White Hart Lane, has spent time on loan at Sheffield United and Ipswich already.
“Last year was massive for me, on the pitch and off the pitch,” he said during Spurs’ pre-season about his time away from north London. “Moving away from home and stuff like that, it builds your character and helps you grow up a bit.
“Playing week in, week out, it builds you as a player and as a person. Mentally and physically, it’s demanding.
“I played a lot of games in the Championship, which is a hard league. I definitely feel like, [coming into] this pre-season, I’ve improved. I definitely feel more confident out there.
Carter-Vickers is due to join this week, according to SunSport, with Swansea facing Leeds United on Tuesday and picking from just two fit centre backs.
Born and raised in Southend, Essex, the young centre-back qualified to play for the USA through his father, Howard, a former basketball player and Carter-Vickers made his debut for the senior team in 2017 against Portugal.
