Celtic supporters have not been impressed with the club's lack of activity in terms of incomings in the ongoing January transfer window. That is one area where the Hoops certainly need to improve and hopefully, a few additions will be made to the squad before February. The Scottish champions have excelled in one aspect since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers though.

That is agreeing to contract extensions with their key players. And now, another one has put pen to paper on a new deal.

As reported by the club's official website, Cameron Carter-Vickers has signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract. It will see him remain at Celtic until 2029.

The good news comes following rumours linking Carter-Vickers with a move back to the Premier League. As reported by SBI Soccer earlier in January, West Ham United, Nottingham Forest, and Brentford were all interested in signing the American centre-back.

Of course, signing a contract extension does not mean that Carter-Vickers is definitely not going to leave the club in the near future. But it does strengthen the position of Celtic.

Carter-Vickers came through the youth ranks at Tottenham Hotspur. He was never able to really break into the starting XI at the London club though. He made a few appearances here and there, but spent the majority of his time out on loan.

Carter-Vickers spent time on loan at six different clubs in the English Championship before finding himself at Celtic. Initially, he was at Parkhead on a temporary basis as well but the Hoops ended up signing him permanently after his impressive performances and key role in Ange Postecoglou's debut campaign.

Carter-Vickers is not having the best campaign this time around. He has spent significant time out on the sidelines, dealing with injury problems. Hopefully, he will have a solid run in the second half of the season.
