Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jake Clarke-Salter Celtic transfer bulletin as defenders make stances clear amid interest

Cameron Carter-Vickers has reportedly made a summer transfer decision amid interest from clubs in Turkey.

The Celtic centre-half, 26, is the club's most consistent and influential defender and it's little wonder he has suitors across the continent with the likes of big-time Super Lig clubs. But now it's been confirmed by US journalist Larry Henry that his countryman has no interest in leaving Parkhead right now as he's happy in Glasgow.

CCV has won five trophies as a Celtic player and become a top player under Ange Postecoglou and Brendan Rodgers after signing from Tottenham on an initial loan before making the switch permanently.

And he's going nowhere despite clear interest in the summer which will come as welcome news for his adoring Hoops fanbase.

Elsewhere, another defender has had his say on his own plans for next season after it emerged that Celts were keeping a close eye on his progress.

Jake Clarke-Salter was earmarked as a possible acquisition from QPR at the end of the campaign but now he, like CCV, has expressed a desire to remain at Loftus Road at least for the foreseeable future despite a long-term ambition to play at the highest level.

"If I’m being totally honest with myself, I had a lot of ambition growing up at Chelsea – captaining Chelsea and England youth sides – and I had some injuries along the way that has hindered my career so to have a home now," he said.

“To be able to stay fit this season, which I always knew would come around again.

“I’m confident now that I can put those injuries behind me and I’m just happy now at QPR. I have a home, I had a good season in the end and I’m just looking forward to the future.”

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy has also emerged as a potential target to replace Joe Hart.
