As the summer wears on, it is starting to look less likely that Spurs will make a move to snap up their former player Steven Caulker. The centre half was sold to Cardiff 12 months ago and despite impressing in their back four, he couldn’t prevent the Bluebirds from being relegated.
It subsequently emerged that the player had a release clause in his contract should the Welsh side drop back into the Championship and that prompted a host of White Hart Lane links, even before the season came to a close.
The other club widely tipped to go in for Caulker were Liverpool whose manager Brendan Rodgers looked after the player when he took a loan spell at Swansea. In time, Arsenal were also mentioned but recently, the strength of connected teams seems to have taken a dip.
According to today’s press, Caulker’s choice is a move back to London to either Crystal Palace or his former boss Harry Redknapp at QPR. Does the defender really deserve to be in another relegation battle or is it time for Tottenham to make their move?
