Ange Postecoglou reacts to Celtic concluding move for Cameron Carter-Vickers
Ange Postecoglou is thrilled to bring Cameron Carter-Vickers on board at Celtic on a permanent basis.
The American international has officially joined from Tottenham Hotspur on a four-year deal, putting an end to the speculation surrounding his future.
The defender has already spoken excitedly about continuing his work with this squad and the manager, but what is the Celtic boss saying to it all?
Postecoglou told CelticFC.com: “I am absolutely delighted that the club has completed the signing of Cameron on a permanent basis. This is a major acquisition for Celtic, really positive news for us and everyone at the club has worked so hard to make this happen.
“Cameron has given everything of himself to the club so far, demonstrating his real value to the team and to the way we play. He was vital to our success during the season, such a hard-working player of real quality and he was an absolute model of consistency.
“When we identify a player, we always hope that they can settle into things as quickly and as easily as possible, but like so many other players during the season, Cameron slotted into life at Celtic brilliantly from very early on. He is a great guy, hugely popular and we are delighted that he sees his future with us.”
This is a fantastic move from Celtic so early in the transfer window and it’s no surprise Postecoglou is such a happy man.
The club board have acted quickly to tie Carter-Vickers down before any real drama and landed a significant asset. This is likely to have cost millions of pounds and as Postecoglou notes, is a serious outlay for the club.
It helps Postecoglou’s pre-season preparations too. He has explained the benefits of bringing in players early in a window before.
It doesn’t get earlier than that first day. Well done to everyone involved in the deal!
