Tottenham Hotspur have secured Cameron Carter-Vickers’s services amid interest from Arsenal, according to a report.
The highly-rated central defender is currently part of the Spurs academy and was reportedly being chased by Arsenal.
However, according to The Daily Mail, Tottenham have ‘convinced’ the teenager to remain at White Hart Lane and sign a professional contract.
It has been claimed that Carter-Vickers, a USA youth international, will sign a two-year deal on his 17th birthday.
Carter-Vickers joined Tottenham when he was 11 years of age and is believed to have a bright future. The fact that Arsenal wanted to prise him away from his fierce North London rivals shows that.
It remains to be seen how Carter-Vickers develops in the coming years. The Tottenham academy is one of the best in England, and he is certainly in good hands.
