We’ve talked a lot about Steven Caulker in these pages and have even discussed his potential to become the ultimate successor to Ledley King. The player himself has impressed while on loan at Swansea this season but has made it clear that he doesn’t want to return to White Hart Lane without the prospect of regular first team football.
In the meantime, Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers seems to have resigned himself to the fact that Spurs won’t sell but he hasn’t ruled out an extended loan deal for the centre half.
“I spoke to Harry at length and just generally he understands Steven has had a fantastic season and it will be between now and the end of the season before they determine where he will go, it will depend on the club and where they are at,” Rodgers said.
“He has made a massive jump in his career through playing games here, and it’s down to where they see him fitting in there next season.
“He will be going back to Tottenham for pre-season, it will then depend on whether he is seen as one who will be part of their squad, whether he is going to play or whether he needs more games.”
A further loan might be preferable to Spurs fans rather than seeing Caulker leave the club altogether but should he be a first team regular at Swansea or White Hart Lane next season?
