Jamie Redknapp: Harry Kane told me this Tottenham player roughs him up
The former Tottenham midfielder reveals Harry Kane's verdict on Spurs prospect Cameron Carter-Vickers
Jamie Redknapp believes Cameron Carter-Vickers is a good prospect for Tottenham Hotspur.
The American teenager made his second start for the north London club on Tuesday night as Liverpool were 2-1 winners against Tottenham in the League Cup thanks to Daniel Sturridge’s goals either side of half-time.
The 18-year-old Tottenham centre-half made his debut in the Lilywhites’ 5-0 win against Gillingham in the third round of the League Cup.
Vickers, whose father was a former player for NBA franchise Denver Nuggets, has scored one goal in nine appearances for the United States’ Under-23 team.
And Redknapp revealed that Harry Kane told the former Tottenham midfielder that Vickers isn’t afraid to get physical with the England international during first-team training.
“This guy is interesting. His dad was an NBA player,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“He has moved to England and they reckon he is going to be a fantastic centre half. He has the size and attributes. He is a powerful boy.
“I was talking to Harry Kane about him. He says in training, he does rough him up a little bit. He is going to be a good player.”
Tottenham are in fifth place in the Premier League table after Saturday’s goalless draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
The north London side are winless in their last four games in all competitions.
Tottenham will host defending Premier League champions Leicester City at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
