CAMERON CARTER-VICKERS “will be more than happy” to remain at Celtic – if the price is right.

That’s the verdict of Hoops legend Kenny Dalglish who was impressed by the attitude of the US international following a past experience.

The Spurs central defender agreed a season-long loan deal just before the August deadline and has become a pivotal figure in Ange Postecoglou’s line-up. The Parkhead boss is eager to get the 24-year-old Southend-born performer to sign a permanent contract at the club.

The buy-out option was reported as £6million when the switch was originally put in place, but there are likely to be add-ons to push the price up a notch or two.

Leicester City, Wolves, Burnley and Bournemouth have been linked with the player whose deal at Celtic expires on May 31 – 10 days after the date of the Scottish Cup Final where he may have a role to play if the Hoops can notch up a third successive derby win over the Ibrox side in Sunday’s semi-final at Hampden.

Dalglish said: “If he wants to leave Tottenham, then I’m sure he will be more than happy to sign for Celtic – if the finances are right.

“He’s done brilliantly. All the paperwork and suggestions for next year will be going on, but there won’t be any fast or hard decisions until this season is finished.

“Celtic will be a greater attraction to Carter-Vickers now than what he realised when he first came up.”

Dalglish, speaking to the Daily Record, added: “I remember him from his time at Tottenham when he was in the first-team squad one day.

“The next day, he came up to Anfield to play in a reserve game and his attitude was 100 per cent on.

“That was impressive to me because he came up and played without any animosity.”
