Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers is poised to join Swansea City on a season-long loan, according to The Sun.

The 20-year-old has already spent time away from London with spells at Sheffield United and Ipswich Town last season.

A third loan deal would boost his development and guarantee game time as he is unlikely to see much first-team action at Spurs – despite signing a new contract in May.

He is behind Toby Alderweireld, Juan Foyth, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen in the pecking order and has yet to make a senior appearance for Tottenham.

Carter-Vickers played 17 times for Ipswich in the Championship last season and made the same number of appearances for Sheffield United.

At Bramall Lane, the United States international also scored once and made two assists.

Links between Tottenham and Swansea are good as a number of players have played for both clubs, either on loan or signing permanent deals.

That may have helped them negotiate a deal for Carter-Vickers, as Ipswich and clubs in the USA were also reportedly interested.

Current Spurs left-back Ben Davies, reserve goalkeeper Michel Vorm and forward Fernando Llorente are all former Swans.

Steven Caulker went on loan to the Welsh club while Tom Carroll, Kyle Naughton and Gylfi Sigurdsson headed there permanently.

Swansea will welcome Carter-Vickers’ arrival as they have had to cope with losing Jordi Amat to Rayo Vallecano, Federico Fernandez to Newcastle Unite and Alfie Mawson to Fulham following their relegation from the Premier League.

Despite having to rebuild over the summer – and not signing any centre-backs – they  have started their Championship campaign strongly, with eight points from their first four matches.

With Joe Roden and Mike Van Der Hoorn the only specialist central defenders at the club, Carter-Vickers could quickly become a first-choice selection for manager Graham Potter.

Helping the Swans mount a promotion push would be the ideal way for him to prove to Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino that he deserves an opportunity when the club moves to its new stadium.
