Tottenham defender began his loan well at Sheffield United... but his form has recently trailed off.
Sheffield United's blistering start to the season hit a speed bump yesterday as they lost 3-1 away to Millwall.
The 19-year-old scored on his Sheffield United debut earlier in the season and has been a regular ever since... but now there are concerns that he needs a spell out of the side.
Carter-Vickers was not the only Sheffield United defender to blame for Saturday's defeat, with their three-man defence breached three times by the home side.
Sheffield United fans believe it is time Carter-Vickers sits out for a bit, with the American racking up 13 Championship starts to date.
Time for ccv and Blackman to take a place on bench for abit, got to play jake Wright at back! #sufc— matt kitson (@mattkitson2) December 2, 2017
Need Baldock back ASAP!! Get Jake Wright in the middle of JOC and Basham. CCV needs dropping, little mistakes costing us #sufc— Adam (@adzblade8) December 2, 2017
Not good enough today #Blades. Negatives - CCV an accident waiting to happen. Morrison bullied our defence. Bash still not a rwb. Clarke isolated. Brooks too deep and wasteful today. Enda sloppy today too. Positives - lundstram and fleck #SUFC #twitterblades— Jordan N (@Jord1986) December 2, 2017
On the way back north, can we please drop Carter-Vickers back off at Tottenham. The lads shite. #sufc— Jack Ashbourne (@JackAshbourne) December 2, 2017
Stevens and Carter Vickers have been poor for a while now— Daniel Lewis Spencer (@DannyLSpencer) December 2, 2017
The time may be right for the teenager to have a brief rest if he is out of form, with this his first ever spell playing competitive club football on a regular basis.
He has shown enough promise so far to suggest he can go on and forge himself a strong career, whether he makes it at Tottenham or not, despite his performance level dropping over the past few games.
As for Tottenham, they could dearly do with Carter-Vickers developing into a first team player for them, considering how exposed they have looked lately without Toby Alderweireld.
Irrespective of his current form, Spurs could need him if Alderweireld's injury requires an operation, with the untested Juan Foyth their third choice centre-back.
