On-loan Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is set to be sidelined for the next few weeks with an ankle injury.
AFC Bournemouth signed the 22-year-old USA international on a season-long loan deal, this despite the defender being in the final year of his contract.
Carter-Vickers joined up with the Cherries squad in mid-October and had been working on his fitness as he hadn’t played competitive football since July, whilst on loan with Luton Town.
For his age, Carter-Vickers holds a wealth of Football League experience having made 92 league appearances for Luton Town, Stoke City, Swansea City, Ipswich Town and Sheffield United all in the Championship.
Tottenham do hold a recall clause in January if they wanted to try and sell him during the January transfer window and the way things are going, that could well happen before Carter-Vickers makes an appearance in a Cherries shirt.
Carter-Vickers is yet to make an AFC Bournemouth matchday squad so far this season and with the change in regulations allowing for five substitutes, the matchday squad now includes nine substitutes.
AFC Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall insists that he would have been involved in the squad on Saturday against Reading if he had not suffered an injury.
Tindall told the Daily Echo…
“Unfortunately Cameron rolled his ankle in the week,
“Unfortunately, especially when there’s now nine subs and he would’ve been involved, he picked up an injury where he rolled his ankle and I think he will out for a few weeks.”
