KENYA BROWN - Saturday, January 20, 2018
Cameron Carter-Vickers has headed out on loan again as Tottenham Hotspur have sent him back to the Championship for the second half of the season, but this time to Ipswich Town.
The news comes after the defender was recalled from his loan to Sheffield United after the opening of the winter transfer window. He would go on to make his way into the Blades' starting lineup, playing 17 games and scoring one goal.
When the 20-year-old was recalled to Spurs it was speculated that he was coming back as cover for the team as they continue to push for the top four in the Premier League while also advancing further in the Champions League. However, it was a quick turn around as the London-based team put his development first.
"I didn't expect to be called back. I thought I would be at Sheffield for the season but then I got told Ipswich wanted me. It's all happened very quickly but I know Ipswich are a big club and it's an exciting opportunity for me," Carter-Vickers told the Ipswich Town website.
The English-born defender has now moved away from Sheffield United, which is in the promotion hunt, for the Tractor Boys which are looking to work their way into the promotion playoff places. They currently sit in 12th place in the standings.
It is a challenge that Carter-Vickers looks forward to taking on as he looks to make inroads with his new team.
"I looked at the Championship table and Ipswich are only four points off the Play-Offs so hopefully I can help the team push on and compete for the top six places," he said. "I've really enjoyed Championship football. It's a demanding league and there are a lot of big clubs in the division. Ipswich are one of them and I'm thankful for the chance to come and play here."
Carter-Vickers will have his first chance to play for Ipswich when they take on Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
