According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (print edition; 5th November 2017; page 59), Sheffield United are fearful that Tottenham may decide to recall Cameron Carter-Vickers from his loan spell at Bramall Lane in January.
Carter-Vickers joined the Blades on a season-long loan deal back in the summer, and helped Chris Wilder's men surprise many by putting themselves second in the Championship table heading into the international break.
Wilder appears to get every member of his team buying into playing their exciting brand of football, with the centre-backs often providing additional support going forward as if they were wing-backs, and Carter-Vickers has been an important part of the side so far this term.
The teenager has made nine league appearances to date and scored the winner against Bolton back in September while also providing an assist in Saturday's 4-1 thrashing of Hull.
It appears however, that his form has not gone unnoticed by his parent club, with The Sun on Sunday (print edition; 5th November 2017; page 59) reporting that Sheffield United fear he may be recalled by Spurs at some stage.
While the report does not suggest whether Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is actually considering bringing the 19-year-old back into the fold, it appears that the Blades are concerned enough that they have identified a potential replacement, with The Sun on Sunday suggesting that Brentford's John Egan is on their radar.
