Celtic have paid an initial fee of around £6m for Cameron Carter-Vickers, with add-ons potentially bringing the total to £10m, SBI Soccer reported tonight.
The US outlet reports the dollar figures at just over $7 million and $12 million, which at today’s rates converts to pounds sterling above.
Larry Henry Jr has been at the heart of the Cameron Carter-Vickers reports since Celtic’s initial interest last summer and has been a reliable source on the matter.
He has confirmed from a source familiar with the deal that these amounts are accurate.
Ange Postecoglou has described the transfer as a ‘meaningful acquisition’ for Celtic and he’s not wrong. The club rarely shell out a fee north of £6m, although this has happened increasingly in recent seasons.
The Bhoys know what they’re getting at Carter-Vickers. He’s a committed defender with strong ball-playing ability who can play from midweek to weekends without any physical issues.
If he continues the progression he has shown at the Bhoys, the club will surely be looking to at least double their money if they want to move on in a few years. His local status in England will help him in this regard.
Celtic have an excellent record of taking profits from high performing players in Scotland.
However, it is far too early for all this. First of all, we can look forward to another outstanding season from the USA international!
