Celtic have announced the signing of centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers from Tottenham Hotspur on loan, with an option to buy.

The signing of the USA international completes a busy day for the Glasgow club in the transfer market. Leigh Griffiths, Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard all left Parkhead, with Portuguese winger Jota and Greek striker Giorgios Giakoumakis arriving.

Carter-Vickers said: “I am absolutely delighted to agree this move to Celtic, it is a really exciting opportunity for me and I am desperate to meet my new team-mates and get going for the season ahead.

“I know I am going to a huge club which means so much to so many people and I will be doing all I can to bring our fans the success which their support deserves.”

The centre-back will now compete for a place in manager Ange Postecoglou’s new-look Celtic side.
