CELTIC completed a dramatic eleventh-hour swoop for Spurs centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers.

The Hoops staged a beat-the-clock move to arrange a season-long loan deal for the English-born US international defender.

Carter-Vickers, 23, told the club website: “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 London club rate the powerhouse stopper in the £5million bracket and the Parkhead men have the option to make the move permanent.

Negotiations went on right up almost until the midnight cut-off before agreement was reached for a player who has two years of his Spurs contract to run.

Carter-Vickers joined the North London club in 2017 and has made only four first-team appearances. As well as Bournemouth last season, he has had loan spells at Sheffield United, Ipswich, Swansea, Stoke City and Luton Town.
