According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (13/1; page 59), Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is going to make a decision on his future this week with Ipswich Town asking about another loan deal for the 21-year-old.
Carter-Vickers left Spurs to join Swansea City in the summer, but has started just six Championship games this season. Graham Potter has generally preferred the pairing of Mike van der Hoorn and Joe Rodon at the heart of his defence.
And the USA international may now be offered a chance to swap clubs this week. The Sun on Sunday (13/1; page 59) reports that Ipswich boss Paul Lambert has made an enquiry and the youngster can make the switch to Portman Road if he wishes to.
It remains to be seen what decision Carter-Vickers make, but it does appear to make some sense to rejoin the Tractor Boys at this stage of his career.
If he wants to stand any chance of forcing his way into Mauricio Pochettino's plans, he surely needs to be playing regularly right now. And he seemingly stands a much better chance of getting consistent game-time with Ipswich.
Lambert's men may be bottom of the table - seven points off safety - but perhaps that may add to the appeal of switching clubs. Carter-Vickers can hardly be held responsible if they go down, and he would be deemed one of the heroes if they manage to pull off a miraculous turnaround.
There appears to be hope after they beat Rotherham on Saturday - with new signing James Collins putting in a fantastic performance - and Carter-Vickers should perhaps look at whether he could form a good partnership with the former West Ham man as it may leave him in a better situation at Spurs than if he sticks around at Swansea for the rest of the campaign.
