“If It Comes, It Comes, Great” – Key Celtic Player Drops Transfer Hint

“If It Comes, It Comes, Great” – Key Celtic Player Drops Transfer Hint

Celtic centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers has left the door open to returning to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old was signed by the Hoops on a permanent basis from Tottenham for £6m last year but Carter-Vickers told The Sporting News that he would consider moving back to a club in the English top-flight if the opportunity arose:

“If it comes, it comes, great, but if it doesn’t. I’m happy where I’m at now.”

In the same interview, Carter-Vickers was also full of praise for Celtic as a club, claiming that the demands of playing for the Scottish champions have made him a better player:

“It’s a club where there’s always pressure on you which I think someone like me almost needs that to keep me focused and keep me playing at my highest level week-in and week out.”

Carter-Vickers has had a difficult start to the season

After starting the first two league games, the defender was struck down with a hamstring injury which kept him out for the best part of six weeks.

On his return, Carter-Vickers was sent on for the final half-hour in the Champions League group game against Lazio. Unfortunately, he gave away the ball in the build-up to the Italian side’s winning goal. He did, however, fair better when he was brought back into the starting lineup for the 3-1 win over Kilmarnock earlier this month.

Celtic will demand a sizeable fee from potential suitors

If a Premier League team does decide to make an approach for Carter-Vickers in a future transfer window, you can bet that Brendan Rodgers‘ side won’t let him leave on the cheap.

After paying £6m to sign him in the first place, you would hope that his asking price would be, at least, 3 or 4 times that. For now, there are no immediate concerns about a potential exit but fans should keep in mind that the player could have his head turned.
