Cameron Carter-Vickers insists that he is perfectly happy at Celtic despite being quizzed about a return to the English Premier League.

The American international has been a pivotal presence at the back for the Hoops since he signed under Ange Postecoglou two years ago from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 25-year-old has been a rock at the heart of the Scottish champions defence and has been mainstay in the side.

Despite returning from injury recently Carter-Vickers was called up to Greg Berhalter's latest USA squad for their double-header against Germany and Ghana.

Carter-Vickers featured for 20 minutes in the United States impressive 4-0 friendly win over Ghana in Nashville after turning out for similar game time during Saturday’s defeat to Germany.

Speaking to The Sporting News, he was asked about the prospect of returning to play in England one day.

Carter-Vickers said: "If it comes, it comes, great, but if it doesn't I'm happy where I'm at now. It's a club where there's always pressure on you which I think someone like me almost needs that to keep me focused and keep me playing at my highest level week-in and week out.

"As a player sometimes, when you're playing week-in and week out, you kinda get into a rhythm of turning up. I don't think the fans at Celtic allow that, a draw in the league is a disaster for the fans. Once you realise that, you know every game you have to be going 100 percent to win the game, and if you don' ready."

Meanwhile Portuguese midfielder Paulo Bernardo would also have caught the eye of Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers ahead of Sunday's Scottish Premiership outing at Tynecastle against Hearts,

Bernardo managed around 170 minutes of action over two matches for Portugal’s under-21s and netted in the 6-1 win over Belarus last week before playing the full 90 minutes during their 2-0 victory against Greece.

Elsewhere Matt O’Riley remained on the bench for Denmark as they beat San Marino 2-1 and Odin Thiago Holm was an unused sub for Norway’s under-21s as they lost 2-0 to Italy.
