Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is wanted by Bournemouth, Swansea City and Luton Town.

Luton and Swansea know the 22-year-old particularly well as he has spent time on loan with both previously.

Carter-Vickers has one year left on contract and Tottenham are willing to let him leave on a permanent transfer. He came through the youth ranks at Spurs and made his debut under Mauricio Pochettino.
Though well regarded at Tottenham, his first team opportunities have been sparse, indeed, he has had five temporary moves away since 2017, taking in spells at Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea, Stoke and Luton last season where he made 16 appearances.
Tottenham are willing to let Carter-Vickers go despite the prospect of another centre-back Juan Foyth heading to Villarreal on loan.

Serge Aurier looks increasingly likely to stay and he and Ben Davies can cover at full-back or centre-back if required. Jose Mourinho also has Japhet Tanganga who can play across the backline while Danny Rose is still at the club after a proposed move to Genoa fell through.
The arrival of striker Carlos Vinicius from Benfica is likely to signal an end to Tottenham’s recruitment for this window.
The Brazilian was at Tottenham’s training ground on Friday ahead of completing his loan move with the option to make the deal permanent for £36.2m. His departure has been criticised by Benfica supporters upset that he has been allowed to leave.
Wolves attempted to sign Vinicius last season but were unable to secure a work permit but Tottenham have succeeded this time round.
