Sheffield United are closing in on the loan signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, reports Sky Sports.

The 19-year-old has played four first team matches for Spurs to date, but following the club record £38.4m signing of Davinson Sanchez this summer and expected arrival of Juan Foyth, the youngster will be allowed to leave on loan.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is happy for Carter-Vickers to join the Blades as like the Argentine, Chris Wilder also operates with a three-man central defence.

Wilder is known to be in the market for a centre-back and has already seen bids for Blackburn Rovers' Darragh Lenihan and Conor Coady of Wolverhampton Wanderers (Express and Star) rejected this summer.

Yet will landing Carter-Vickers end that interest in Lenihan and Coady? After all, the USA Under-23 international's arrival will take Wilder's total number of options in the position to five.

Lenihan was catching United's eye following Blackburn's relegation to League One, but Sky Sports reported that their latest bid of £1.25m was turned down, while Coady's departure from Wolves seems more unlikely with the 24-year-old having been a key part of the promotion hopefuls' set-up this term.
