We’ve talked a fair bit about Steven Caulker this week but it’s worth looking at the player’s most recent comments as to where he feels his future lies. It’s been a big week for our centre half, currently on loan at Swansea and he marked his 4th under 21 cap with his first goal for England in the week.
After the game, Swansea’s Brendan Rodgers was asked about any plans to sign Caulker on a permanent basis.
“Steven is going to be a top player. He is only 20 years of age but he’s been a dominant player for us, brilliant all season,” Rodgers said.
“But as for signing him, I think Tottenham have got a big future planned for him there so I don’t think they’ll be selling him.”
Questioned on the issue, the player himself added,
“I’ve been out on loan and done my bread-and-butter work. Next season I will be looking to break into the Tottenham team.
“I’d love to play in the Champions League next year.”
Whether he will make the centre back position his own is up for debate but it’s looking increasingly like Steven Caulker will be an important part of Tottenham’s first team squad in 2012-13.
