England defender Steven Caulker signs four-year deal with the Bluebirds
Cardiff City have signed Steven Caulker from Tottenham for a club record fee.
The England defender has agreed a four-year deal with the Premier League new boys.
Caulker made 29 first team appearances at White Hart Lane and enjoyed loan spells at Yeovil Town, Bristol City and Swansea City.
The 21-year-old made his England debut against Sweden in November last year and appeared at this summer’s Under-21 Euros in Israel.
Caulker told Cardiff's official website
: “First and foremost I want to say how happy I am to have signed with Cardiff City. I’m delighted to be here and excited for this fresh challenge.
“I spoke to the gaffer yesterday, liked what he had to say and am excited about the plans he has for the football club. You get the sense of excitement from everybody at the club in the build-up to the season’s kick-off at West Ham and I’m really looking forward to being part of it.
“I thank Tottenham for everything they’ve done for me, having been there since I was a kid.
"But I’m here to back myself up now and show what I can do. This is a fresh start, a new chapter and I’m here to kick on.”
