Cardiff make bid for Caulker

Cardiff City have made a bid of £8million for Tottenham Hotspur defender Steven Caulker, according to the Mail Online.

The 21 year old is valued at around £12million, but the Bluebirds are hopeful that a deal including add-ons will suffice.

Liverpool and Manchester City have also been linked with a move for the centre-back, but Cardiff are the only club to follow up their interest with an offer.

Caulker broke into the Spurs first team last season having spent the previous three seasons on loan with Yeovil Town, Bristol City and Cardiff’s fierce rivals Swansea City.

However, he started just seventeen league matches under Andres Villas-Boas last season, and with the club having signed Romania international Vlad Chiriches, there is concern that he once again will not get enough games if he stays in North London.

He has just one full international cap to his name, and with the World Cup next summer, will be keen to play regularly in order to be considered as part of Roy Hodgson’s squad should England qualify.

This a great deal for everyone. I don’t think he is top six side standard although has fantastic potential. The problem for him and Spurs is that we need strength now and he needs time to develop. He will play more and get better at Cardiff. I hope this deal goes through. Good Luck Steven

Wouldn’t like us to lose Caulker. Maybe a loan to Cardiff, or first refusal on buy back?
