Tottenham have agreed to sell Cameron Carter-Vickers to Celtic in a £6m deal.

Carter-Vickers came through Tottenham’s academy and made his first-team debut in 2016 but he featured for the senior side just five times and had spells on loan with Sheffield United, Ipswich, Swansea, Stoke, Luton and Bournemouth prior to joining Celtic.
