Wolves transfer news: Wanderers have solid interest in Cameron Carter-Vickers

Wolves are reportedly in the hunt to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer.

The Daily Record have reported that Wanderers are one of three English clubs tracking the Tottenham Hotspur man, who is currently on loan at Celtic.

They do say that Celtic are ‘edging closer’ to landing Carter-Vickers permanently.

The Scottish giants have the option to buy him for £6 million.

But Record say his price could rise as high as £10 million with future add-ons. Burnley and Leicester City are also keen.

The player’s camp apparently believes Parkhead is the best place for him to develop, having enjoyed the best spell of his career there so far.

But Wolves are supposedly showing ‘solid interest’ in the USA international.

Wolves have been great defensively this season, but there will be need to bring in a new centre-half this summer, having gone several windows without doing so.

Romain Saiss is out of contract and may move on.

And the club will need a long-term replacement for Willy Boly, even if he has looked solid of late.

Carter-Vickers enjoying best spell, as Wolves lurk

Carter-Vickers, 24, is currently having the best spell of his career in Glasgow.

He’s getting regular football with Celtic, and at the weekend he scored the winner against Rangers in the Old Firm Derby.

He then put in a colossal defensive display, to help Celtic take three massive points to go six clear atop the Premiership table.

It seems Celtic are very much in pole position to sign Carter-Vickers.

But perhaps money will talk if Wolves offer a greater financial package to the player and a higher fee to Spurs.
