Pochettino to look at Cameron Carter-Vickers

Cameron Carter-Vickers is very highly thought of at Spurs. Manager Mauricio Pochettino likes him, he has the talent and more importantly the mentality to succeed. The 18-year-old (19 in December) right-footed centre-back has already played 9 games for the USA Under-23 team and has impressed the coaching staff and teammates, who were surprised by his ability when he moved up from the Under-20 side.

We haven't yet bought a backup for Toby Alderweireld and Pochettino will take close look at him during the International Champions Cup. For a youngster it is a challenge to play against Juventus and Atletico Madrid, no just the football side but the mental side of the game as well. He will have to play against big teams, whoever they put out.

For he and others, how they perform will determine their immediate future this season. Will he impress enough to be trusted to step up? Will we be using Kevin Wimmer as centre-back cover for each side, assuming we can get someone to take Federico Fazio off our hands of course? That would allow us to give Carter-Vickers cameo appearances to get used to the level.

We are being linked with right-sided centre-backs but nothing seems very serious at the moment, perhaps that is because the sale of Fazio doesn't look very likely at the moment.
