    Cameron Carter-Vickers has signed a new contract with the Club until 2020 and has joined Sheffield United on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

    Sheffield United not a bad place to develop as a defender - Harry Maguire, our former Kyles and apparently Phil Jagielka. At last we're getting loans that will benefit our youngsters rather than sending them off to the lower leagues.

    Some onions from Blades fans:

    Big unit but an athlete and good on the ball.

    I'm pretty sure he's very highly rated at spurs and has been in and around the first team. U less I'm mixing it up with another double barrelled prospect. One of many (y)

    Exactly the type of signing we should be making imo - will have learned a thing or 2 in the training with the prems best defence

    You're getting a good player lads, been highly touted for years but needs this loan. He's good on the ball, reads the game well and is an absolute unit.

    Looks like a reyt fucking unit, tbf.

    Could go either way this. On the one hand Spurs clearly rate him highly and he's been in their first team squad on a few occasions. On the other he's reportedly made big mistakes in the few games he's started for Spurs and has looked poor

    You've got to take the standard into account - these spurs fans have been watching probably the best centre back paring in the league if not world football for the last few years - almost anyone else will suffer in comparison to those guys. Much more so an 18/19 year old who make an error.

    Sounds like a loan spell is the best thing for all parties

    I'm not going to write the lad off but it's a pretty big risk going for someone so inexperienced to shore up our defence.

    Sounds like everything we could want in a young centre back - it's no huge risk and exactly the type of player we should be looking to loan. Could also put us in a decent position if he decides to move on from Spurs in the future

    I hope we get him. Exactly what we need, strong, athletic and composed. This from seeing him play, not reading about him. Saw him in the U20 WC a couple of years ago and he looked like a man amongst boys. Seen him a few times since and has always impressed, for me he would walk into our team at the moment as an upgrade.I was very pleasantly surprised that we look like getting him as I thought that he was way out of our league.

    He will surprise you. Played a few times last season for spurs and did well. I have been championing this guy since he was 17 and I think will be a better player than lenihan. Prefer to save money for a partner for billy.

    Just hope you can get over the obsession with spending money as though it means something

    We've got Carter-Vickers, ladies chuck yer knickers
    Na naa naa na


    Then there's a bit of chat about why he's got a double barrelled name. Seem like they generally approve.

    Some good, sensible comments there - thanks for digging them out.

    He has no future with us, he has too much competition the new contract is just to get a fee.

    I think the contract is definitely to give us security but it's quite a bold claim to say he has no future at all with us!

    We just got Foyth and Sanchez and he has Dier in front of him as well, he hasn't yet convinced Poch and I think he wil have to reach a very high standard to convince him. I don't see him doing that in a season. I always thought Wimmer was a good player but Poch thought he wasn't good enough.

    This is a big year for him, no doubt.

    At this stage, I expect both CCV and Onomah to be sold next summer. But, both could show they deserve another shot with strong years in the Championship. Up to the players now.

    I also thought that Wimmer looked quality when he stepped in for Jan but obviously went wrong somewhere.

    Sanchez and Foyth now have a chance to train and impress, we shall see if they do so.

    I think the loan is a good move as it should get him game time and the chance to impress, all down to him but I'm not convinced that means he can't come back if he does so. He also may yet play for the US so again a chance to catch the eye.

    I suspect not but it's not over for him yet.

    How the heck did I manage to completely miss he'd gone out on loan lol!

    Good move loaning out players, they need game-time now they'd had a season spent with our first team squad already training in their ways.

    “He’s a unit, an absolute unit,” Wilder said. “In the football environment, somebody always knows somebody and they said watch him in training because he’s liable to leave one on you. I’m all for that, so long as he doesn’t leave one on me.”

    Pochettino was very clear about these loans. He said he likes young players to spend a couple of seasons training with first team and trying to become a regular. If they do not he believes they should go out on loan for a year or two to show they can do it. Looks as though Onomah is doing the business so let's wait a few weeks and see if CCV can. Either way I don't think it represents the end of their Spurs careers.

    A few comments from a Sheff Utd Forum

    "Decent finish from CCV and nearly had a second. He's looked good on the ball, won some good headers but once or twice you could tell it was his first league start - he looks promising tho, think once he grows in confidence he'll start some trademark basham surges forward."

    "As well as scoring CCV has won every header against the twat. Got a good touch and good pass. Still early but lots and lots of potential."
